If the UI vp isn't set, the whole branch isn't entered in the first
place (it's within "if (sbs_area && user_setting)").

As noted in the other long thread, the UI vp is the viewport "for the
whole UI except skins". It is even for skins now. Hence it is the UI's
default viewport. Any viewport that wants default should follow it.
Therefore the change is correct.

The lists only get their viewport from the sbs if no ui viewport is set.
That's the only possibiluty and that's what %Vi is for (I repeatedly
said that in the other long thread), and what we talked about quickly
