Okay, the idea was setting the style property
`GtkScrollbar::min-slider-length` to something smaller than the default
21, but a bug in GTK3 makes it virtually impossible (as while the
property is set, it is not taken into account the first time, meaning
the popup would still be too tall.
Of course we don't have the problem on GTK3, but I don't feel like
submitting a patch to Scintilla which uses one hack for GTK2 and a
completely different one for GTK3.

This said, the reason we need the hack is because of
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=712220, so if this was fixed
we could one day drop the hack.  But this would mean depend on a fixed
version, which probably won't be acceptable before a decade or so :)

So we'll have to fix the Windows build issue in some way…
