some touchpads have a horizonal scroll at the bottom. mine, in particular, has 
only a bit of paint indicating where the scrollbar is; I can't feel anything 
when my finger enters that area. I don't *think* I do accidental scrolling very 
much, but still... something that isn't easily undone isn't the greatest sort 
of thing to have as a hidden feature. :)

anyways, if I want to go up in a breadcrumb I can directly click the folder I 
want to go up to instead of trying to scroll the correct distance, so I don't 
think I'd use this feature :)
