Thank you for the clarification, and sorry for the noise, then.

Uhm, I don't know if there needs to be an option, then! :)

But what about using the scroll wheel to do the scrolling in the list view? 
What about the navigation keys?

I find I seldom use the scrollbar at all... I use it as an indication on how 
many items there are, and where I am in the list, but I tend to use the 
scroll wheel or the navigation keys, depending on where my hands are.
