Summary: limit scrollback

Initial Comment:
I have nosiest that gaim don't limit the scroll-back
buffer as eg xchat does. This is no problem when you
are on for a short time or online on channels/chat room
with little conversations. But as I that hardly ever
log out and are in channels (IRC) that have not so
little conversation. Then two bad things happens:

1) gaim grow in memory to a point where I have to
restart it because it takes over 100MB (or more) of RAM
or I at least think the memory growth is because of the

2) When gaim save the scroll-back to a file gaim freeze
and takes 100% CPU. And with a large scroll-back this
take some time. And for some reason gaim freeze and
take 100% CPU even if I don't want to log a large channel.

Suggestion to fix: Limit the scroll-back as in xchat.
Default to something like 1000 lines but see to it that
this figure are configurable. This limit could be
checked and uphold when saving to file. If there are
more then 1000 lines in the scroll-back then remove
(and freed) all lines that are "older" then 1000 lines.
