Fix scrollbar policy

In gpk-application if package descriptions are long enough, they can cause textview_description to expand enough to totally obscure the treeview_packages widget!  I've attached a screenshot to explain.

I found a fix - in the glade file, I think the two of the properties for scrolledwindow2 are accidentally reversed.  Horizontal scrollbar policy is set to "Automatic" and vertical scrollbar policy is set to "Never", but swapping those to values - Horizontal to "never" and Vertical to "auto" - fixes this perfectly.

I've attached a patch for the glade file from your git master branch.

    bugfix: use scrollbars in the description, and set the hbox to a fixed size to avoid flicker. Based on a patch from Jens Knutson, many thanks. Fixes fd#19633
