Actually my favorite approach is to pair the scroll arrows together in
the center of the thumb (or on one end, top or bottom), and have the
cursor move with the thumb while you're scrolling (by holding down one
of the arrows).
This means that you have "one stop shopping" for all scrolling motion.
For example, if you want to go to a particular location, you click the
middle mouse on the scroll bar at that location -- the thumb jumps
there and the arrows with it, leaving the cursor in exactly the right
position to make fine adjustments with the arrows.
I've forgotten which GUI did this, but I have seen it before.
