Screenshots showing the problem
Open the Basic IDE and notice a horizontal scrollbar at the bottom of the window. It seems pointless and I can't figure out what it's supposed to control.
Moreover, it does not use all the available horizontal spacing, hence it feels like a bug.
See attached screenshot for more info.
Repro since at least

Obviously the horizontal scrollbar at the bottom of the window
serves to scroll content in the Basic Editor (code box).
It seems that new location of the scrollbar was introduced in version 5.2.0
(cf. Issue 86568 and Issue 96683).

Do you mean that little, almost black rectangle in your screenshot?
nutka is absolutely right, the scrollbar should be just inside the code edit area and if you will enter so much symbols in only one row then you'll see the scrollbar changed and works as should

Video showing the new scrollbar
The proposed patch creates a separate horizontal scrollbar for the code editor window. The dialog editor window remains unchanged.
