Scrollbar in 3.1.1

In upgrading from 3.0 to 3.1.1 (I'm on the RC2 build now), I noticed the scrollbar on the main editor window has shifted to the right (hugging the border of the RubyMine window). This switch, while seeming quite minor, is (for me at least) very annoying. I find it noticeably harder to click on the bar to drag it up and down to navigate, particularly if my Rubymine windows is maximized in Windows.

I can't seem to see any way to configure this any other way. Is there a way to configure this?

If there is no way to configure this, I'd request to either revert to the 3.0 style scrollbar or make it configurable.

Hello Dara,

No, there is no way to configure the scroll bar, and we don't currently plan
to make it configurable.

If that is the case, is it possible to revert the scrollbar position to to where it appears in 3.0?

I don't think this is something I'm going to "get used to" (I've been using it daily for several weeks and I still don't like it). I genuinely feel this diminishes basic usability of RubyMine for me. While grabbing the scrollbar in just about any application I use is just something I do without ever thinking about it, I find myself having to work at it in this new RubyMine configuration.

Native in Mac OS Lion and iOS are also similar to our ones. I assume after MacOS release they become quite popular on other OS too.
