[Lazarus] For QtLCL users - new feature, need testers

Hi all,
Today I've commited new feature of qt widgetset (r43218) - scrollable forms.
Now FCentralWidget isn't pure widget anymore but QAbstractScrollArea, 
which provides scrollbars on forms for us.
IT'S DISABLED BY DEFAULT, so if you want to test and use scrollable 
forms with qt widgetset you must enable QTSCROLLABLEFORMS define in 
It will be merged to 1.99.

Known issues: When source autocomplete window is activated in source 
editor QPainter asserts in console (but window is painted correctly).

What does not work (forms aren't scrollable)
1. FormStyle=fsMDIForm isn't scrollable form for LCL atm.
2. FormStyle=fsMDIChild isn't scrollable form atm.
3. QWidget_windowType(Widget) = QToolTip or QSplashScreen (that means 
hints and splash screen aren't scrollable).

Please, if you find any problem when QTSCROLLABLEFORMS are enabled open 
an issue about it so I can fix it before 1.2 release.
