There seems to be a problem with the vertical scroll bar when editing
documents in LibreOffice Writer 3.5 for Mac OS X.

When the document is long enough and the vertical scroll bar shows up, I
have to click the very top of the scroll bar handle in order to drag it; if
I click even slightly lower, Writer will directly page-down instead of
allowing me to drag the handle.

Even worse, if the document is so long that the scroll bar handle becomes
about only 0.5 cm long, the clickable zone of the scroll bar handle
completely disappears, such that regardless of which part of the scroll bar
handle I click, Writer will either directly page-up or page-down.

Is every Mac user experiencing the same problem?

I have no problem. The scroll bar handle does get smaller with multiple page files but is still quite usable on a 250 page document.

The handle is the same size for a specific document when opened in LibreOffice 3.5, OOo 3.3, Pages, Bean, or TextEdit.

What version of OS X are you using? (I have version 10.6.8) There is a change in scroll bars in Lion (Version 10.7).
