In principle, scrollbars are the preferred control for scrolling something. I think that would be OK for the DeskBar, too, even if it adds space in the other dimension. Just make the DeskBar wider. For pop up menus I think the reason why Be added these hover arrows is because people also keep the mouse pressed while navigating menus and release to invoke. A scrollbar would make this habit unusable.
Nothing speaks against scrolling when you move beyond the upper or lower border of the view -- just like similar actions when you drag something over a scrollable view.
