They can call it what they want - I'm still going to file things like this 
as _bugs_ and I encourage anybody who's upset about missing features to do 
the same.  This is the attitude that really annoyed me when we got a 
completely broken KDE4 sprung on us.  It doesn't matter that KDE4 is a 
rewrite, if KDE3 had features we've come to rely on, losing them in the 
upgrade is a bug.

Left click on a scroll-bar - in Kate and Konqueror for certain, Konsole I 
think, and probably other KDE apps - and the scrolling will continue until 
it reaches the end of the content.  It doesn't matter if I use my touchpad, 
wired mouse, wireless mouse or Page Up/Down keys, so it's not particular 
hardware, and afaict it can't even be the HID driver - as the Page keys 
can't go through that.
