Description of problem:
While downloading updates with long descriptions, up2date (graphical version)
shows a description field with a scroll box. Unfortunately, since there's a
watch cursor and interaction is not allowed, the scroll bar is useless.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download an update with a description that doesn't fit in the box.
2. Try to scroll to see the whole thing.

hmm, indeed...

at some point, up2date will be rewritten to use async networking,
which will resolve this problem.
