Ensure the layout is really finished before emitting layoutFinished().


This patch implements scrolbar position saving on plasma exit. The change is fairly trivial, however, due to the fact that the view is not populated and layouted immediately simply scrolling to the desired position on creating the view does not work. Instead a signal is emitted on finishing the item layout, when the view has a valid size and the scrollbar has a valid range. The signal is connected to a slot which scrolls the view to the desired position and then disconnects the signal. For the user, a public function in AbstractItemView is introduced, which performs the connection.

The only problem is that ListView turned out not to have any layout method. It just paints the items one by one, calculating their position on the fly, so I put the signal at the end of updateScrollbar to ensure the scrollbar range is valid. Maybe it should go into the "if (max>0)" branch?

This addresses bug 261139.

Tested both the icon view and the list view, works fine.
