No, it's more than one line:

IMPL_LINK( SwView, ScrollHdl, SwScrollbar *, pScrollbar )
in main/sw/source/ui/uiview/viewport.cxx
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/incubator/ooo/trunk/main/sw/source/ui/uiview/viewport.cxx?revision=1198305&view=markup#l700

This issue has 58 votes, Apache OpenOffice 3.4.0 has 8 million downloads; it is
rather hard to measure how annoying is this bug for all the users. So killing
this feature isn't the right way to go.

The tooltips for the content in Writer can be turned off by a setting on the
configuration registry: /org.openoffice.Writer/Content/Display/PreventTips
This settings is not available from the "Tools" - "Options..." dialog, you have
to use a macro to turn it on/off.

Something similar can be implemented for the tooltips in the scroll bar. It has
to be discussed if:

- showing scroll bar tips is or and off by default
- this option is configurable with the "Tools" - "Options..." dialog
