Maybe region overlap should be disabled for this editor?

Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) changed Type from Bug to To Do.

This is more of a TODO. Its worked like this for a long time, there is some conflict with this option but its quite usable too.

Note, this bug is still in existence, and still makes the horizontal scrollbar impossible to use in the vse. And, as of 2.8, it seems the region overlap is now enabled by default, meaning that the vse is broken in the default setup...

Also, I didnt test this originally so im not sure if it was the case back then, but this seems to ONLY affect the vse, and not other 2d editors with scrollbars...

Please click on the gif for an illustration of the problem when ex. swapping the position of the panel, where the vertical scrollbar completely disappears, making it impossible to work in the vse:
