This was exactly it - solved my problem.  Thanks!  (Apologies for the
delayed response, it was only just now that I finally had a chance to
check!)  FYI, uninstalling is unnecessary - simply disabling overlay
scrollbars is sufficient.

# gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface ubuntu-overlay-scrollbars

Doesn't even require logging out of your X session; you just need to
exit and restart claws and the change takes effect right away.  Anyone
know if there's already a bug report with the overlay-scrollbar
package?  Admittedly I like having the bit of extra screen real estate
on my netbook and this was the first time I'd encountered a problem.
Oh well, glad claws is working correctly again!
