[PD] patch scroll bars

Yes, definitely in the category of “annoying” and not “critical”. I haven’t done any Tcl programming, but I’ll take a look, for what it’s worth. Relevant code?

I find that sometimes resizing doesn’t even make the bars go away. Also something that interacts: the offsets for a  GOP window. I’ve had a long habit of setting them to zero so that the window is in the upper left corner of the subpatch. *Sometimes* making those offsets at least 4 makes the scroll bars disappear in the subpatch (assuming the other edges of the patch window are out far enough). Sometimes not, though. I can’t figure out any consistent behavior.

Yes, it's annoying. No, it's not been easy to figure out what's going on. Feel free to play with the Tcl and help fix it.

Easiest thing to do for now is to resize the window and the bars go away. Also, works to have a little bit of space padding out the sides.

In the last few versions of Pd (on OS X at least -- I can’t speak for the other platforms), the behavior of patch window scrollbars seems somewhat confusing. It used to be easy to size a patch window so that there would be no scrollbars, but now I can’t figure out what the trick is to do that. Sometimes the scrollbars appear, sometimes they don’t. Resizing the patch window sometimes makes them disappear, only to have them re-appear on the next time the patch is opened.

Has anybody else noticed this?
