Code changes

Monday 01:22 9e802be969: [BugFix] run filebrowser automatically for out of tree shortcuts

missed a case for out of tree shortcuts coming from the quickscreen in the main menu

Sunday 20:20 83566008a0: [Feature] run filebrowser automatically for out of tree shortcuts

supersedes g#5499 run .link shortcuts within menu shortcuts and just extends it to the whole plugin stack which makes sense as long as it doesn't cause any new bugs ;)

Sunday 15:31 1e3e9c68c8: [FixRed] Touchscreens in the YesNO dialog

Sunday 15:13 9dd1b0f46d: [BugFix] YesNo screen scrolling

clearing the viewport stops the scroller so instead clear the viewport ourselves
[this might cause some glitching but should be acceptable] in testing this causes no discernible ill effect -- time will tell..

Sunday 03:31 58ec8c62bb: fonts: Update the 16px GNU Unifont to a derivative of 15.0.06-JP

Sourced from the UnifontEX ( fork

The existing one is over 15 years old (5.1.20080820) and there has been a LOT of progress since then, even before the additional work done in the UnifontEX fork.
