I'm using Emacs in dwm window manager of suckless.org, with the following
(menu-bar-mode 0) (scroll-bar-mode 0) (tool-bar-mode 0)
When I launch Emacs, with the command
$ emacs, my scroll bar thumb vanishes, as it should because I have used
scroll-bar-mode 0 in my init file. But the scroll-bar space remains, colored black, on the right side of the main window.
I can quickly go into floating mode and back into tiling mode to fix the problem and I don't exit emacs that often. So, it's not a big problem, but it is certainly annoying. I haven't have gotten a chance to test if this also happens in other window managers.
And if I launch Emacs with
$ emacs -Q, and evaluate the codes in my init file, similar thing happens. Only this time, instead of the scroll-bar area being blacked out, it just gets messed up.
Does anyone know what is going on there? I have Emacs latest release version 26.1

I have just found out that the problem is fixed by putting
(scroll-bar-mode 0) after
(tool-bar-mode 0) and not before! Why is that?
