A few notes about this patch. I took Tim's suggestion, and tried to use Brent's momentum events to create a test, and I kind of succeeded. The test seems to work on my machine. I am just dubious because I am not 100% convinced that these momentum events will do the exact same thing on all computers. So I put a note in the test about how if it turns out to be flakey, we can skip it. But! It is effective on my machine.

Another note. Sitting with Simon and Sam about this bug, they also want ScrollableArea::handleWheelEvent() to return early is the ScrollableArea is not scrollable or rubberbandable. I am going to implement that in a followup patch because adding a virtual function to ScrollableArea called isScrollableOrRubberbandable() turns out to be a bit complicated for RenderListBox since there is already a virtual function of that same name in its RenderObject inheritance chain. Ah, the joys of multiple inheritance. Anyway, there are obviously solutions to that problem, but it seems involved enough that it should be a separate patch.
