Try adding:

    *text.scrollHorizontal:	Always
    *text.scrollVertical:	Always

to your X resources.  I liked the old behaviour of only adding the scroll
bars when they were needed but "WhenNeeded" instead of "Always" doesn't work
(xc/lib/Xaw/Text.c has code like:

    if (q == QScrollNever || q == QScrollWhenNeeded)
	scrollMode = XawtextScrollNever;

).  The horizontal scroll bar positioning is still sometimes broken though.
