Because the default widget dedicated in kipi tools settings view is not a
scroll area as other place in digiKam

This is not a bug but a non homogeneous choice. If all kipi tools was
integrated as well in digiKam core (idea that i plan to do in the long
term), this problem will disappear without to duplicates code everywhere
between digiKam and kipi-plugins.
