I got the latter two to work by saying the following:

*VT100.Scrollbar.background:          grey
*VT100.Scrollbar.foreground:          black

I'm not sure why the VT100 is necessary; my system has no resource
settings more specific than *Scrollbar that would cause the settings you
specified to be ignored.

So there may be a bug Xrm, Athena, or XTerm here.

Changing the thickness doesn't work at all, probably because its effect
is overriden by the usage of "backgroundPixmap".  Also see Debian Bug

Maybe so, but things should still work.
