The slider is a separate GdkWindow; the GdkWindow is sized to change the
size of the slider. That's why you still see a slider when you set the
function to NULL, because the slider window has a different background
than the trough window.

You might want to look at gtk_vscrollbar_calc_slider_size() in 

The only solution I can think of is to paint the slider the same color as
the trough so it's invisible, then draw a smaller slider. But button
clicks on the invisible part of the slider will still take effect - so,
that's not really a solution at all.

Might have to wait for more advanced themeability. :-)
