Ah, no, I don't assign anything *specifically* to the scrollbar. The bindings
in question are these:

XTerm*VT100.Translations: #override \
        Shift<Key>Prior:scroll-back(1,page) \n\
        Shift<Key>Next:scroll-forw(1,page) \n\
        Shift<Key>Insert:insert-selection(PRIMARY, CUT_BUFFER0) \n\

Except that they don't, anymore. When the mouse cursor is over the scrollbar
hitting Shift-Prior sends the escape sequence bound, rather than scrolling.
If the mouse cursor is outside the scrollbar, it works as expected. The
other bindings behave similarly.
