I know what you mean, I always hated that scrollbar... when I launch xterm I 
don't get a scrollbar anymore in hoary though :)

You can still re-enable it with the following option though:

xterm -sb
But it still looks ugly I guess... I always use Shift+PgUp and Shift+PgDn as 
an alternative to the scrollbar.
