Do you want this behavior in all scrollbars? Also in text editors and
in your browser? A click on a stream position indicator is simply
different from a click on a real *scroll*bar. It should definitely
not be the default behavior of GtkRange.

Why can't totem simply fix that by itself? The most trivial way
is to connect to button-press-event and button-release-event
and change GdkEventButton::button from 1 to 2 in the callback
and return FALSE.

Another option is to add a property for that in GtkRange itself.
