GUI: behaviour of game list

Reported by: criezy Owned by: fingolfin

Make the list of game behaves in a more standard way. There are two points which in my opinion can be improved:

1) Typing in quick sequence "i" and "n" should select the first game starting by "in" (e.g. Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis) and not the first game starting with a "n" (e.g. Nippon Safes).

2) Clicking on the vertical scroll bar above or below the handle scrolls the view by one page. It should scroll the View by Slightly less than one page. For example if you click below the handle, the new top item is the item that was below the bottom item before the scrolling happens. But this is a bit confusing because there is no way to know if we have not missed some games that are between the former bottom item and the new top item. Ideally the scrolling should be slightly less than one page (usually after scrolling you still see half of the former bottom item at the top - or enough of it to identify it, and therefore you know you didn't miss any items).

Point 1 has been how we do it for a long time now; and I just checked, it still works. If it doesn't for you, please file a bug report with details on how/where to reproduce this.

Point 2 I have just implemented on trunk in r42881. It scrolls a full page minus one line, which I verified to match e.g. the Mac OS X Finder, and which also matches the page up/down keys in ScummVM.
