Hi Samuel, *,

Since there is a wide variety of ideas how to act, I decided to look at 
the roots of this dicsussion. And IMO - but pls correct me if I'm wrong 
- that is in these issues:

Now in Bug 40429 I read:
- Description:   " in the middle of the two "double arrows". Should be a 
little circle, but it doesn't fit. "
- Comment 2: " the issue is Ubuntu (Unity Desktop) has very thin scroll 

OK, so there should be a circle but it is something different. ?
However it works fine, doesn't it. And it does not jump in the eye as an 
ugly distortion, anyway not to me.

With Bug 58748 / 36772 etc etc it is about the sheet tabs not being 
displayed correctly. I agree that that is a problem, and not a tiny one.
But I miss how that should that be improved by removing the navigation 

So after reading this in detail, I'm not sure if there is a real problem 
that can be solved by removing controls (that by the way just work and 
are being used).

Is there some other real problem that needs to be addressed by the 
patch? Is there something that I oversee?
