[KDE GTK Settings] Add "left mouse button wraps scroll bar" setting

Review Request #128475 - Created July 18, 2016 and submitted

GTK 3 by default warps the scroll bar when left clicking it outside the draggable part.

This makes it inconsistent with Qt apps (and virtually any other toolkit) that does that on middle click with left click only scrolling up or down a page.

Tests pass.

Checked checkbox, setting was written, Firefox scrolled like mental.
Unchecked checkbox, setting was written, Firefox scrolled like anybody else.

Is there a startup script or kded module that writes these settings initially, like Breeze icons? I think the false should be there by default to make it consistent with all other applications.

Good feature, but the label is extremely difficult to understand for people not familiar with the lingo.

We had discussed this a while ago, and you came up with

"When clicking the scroll bar with the left mouse button":
( ) Jump to the mouse cursor position
( ) Scroll up/down one page

which I find much easier to understand.
Sorry for not putting that here initially.
