I constructed the following scrollwidth.rc file:

class "GtkRange" style "wide_range"
I placed the file in my activity folder, then added the following line
toward the beginning of the init segment of my activity (.py):
The activity (which uses a full-screen gtk.ScrolledWindow) runs fine and its
log reflects no errors. However, the window's scrollbars remain the default
width. (They are fully viewable as well.)

possibility of widening scrollbars, since any change would be limited to my
Does anyone see the flaw(s) here?
