After more tests, I found that the behaviour I was seeing wasn't due to
forking. In 0.86.1, if you use fl_addto_browser to add lines to a hidden
browser, the main browser stays hidden, but the scroll bars reappear.

They can't be hidden with a simple fl_hide_object(browser), you have to
first fl_show_object(browser) then hide it again.

Sorry for my earlier traffic with the forking behaviour, I automatically
assumed that this behaviour was caused by all the forking I was doing.

I can provide a code snippet that reproduces this behaviour, if that
would be helpful.
