Thanks Nilesh - that helped. For reference sake, here are the
functions that are invoked :

In WebKit/gtk/webkit/webkitwebview.cpp :
webkit_web_view_scroll_event - called when using mouse's scroll wheel.
webkit_web_view_real_move_cursor - called when scrolling the page
using keyboard (up/down etc)

In WebCore/platform/ScrollView.cpp
 ScrollView::scrollContents - called when scrolling the page by
pressing the arrows on scrollbar or by dragging the scrollbar.
