Since it's not possible for an application to check whether a user
actually is *looking* at it to determine whether he's interested in
having the dialog not close automatically, I've chosen another way:
If the user scrolls up the list control to look at stuff (so that the
last line is not visible anymore), then the dialog won't close
automatically anymore independent of the settings.
This was done in r13150.
