Fedora 22 introduces hiding scroll bars

Fedora 22 introduces auto hiding scroll bars. The sugar theme is really not ready for this!

Instead of having a scroll indicator which expands into a full scroll bar (like GNOME theme), sugar scroll bars are completely hidden except when scrolling or mousing over them.

This is going to be very confusing for users!

You say it Fedora 22 which introduced the feature, but was it the Gtk+ version which did it rather than Fedora 22? Can you confirm your patch has no effect on systems with earlier versions of Gtk+?

Disable overlay scrolling, fixes #4854

This commit disables overlay scrolling in Sugar. Although this should
be set in the sugar theme, that is not possible.

Setting the environment variable disables the overlay scrolling for
both Sugar Shell and all sub processes (eg. activities).

By setting an environment variable, this is ignored by Gtk versions
less than 3.16.
