API change RT-19955: Configuring a PopupWindow so that it consumes the event used for hiding

Hi Lubo,

why do you think that the name is ambiguous? Seems clear to me. Some 
other thoughts:

What happens if I have two different popups showing at the same time, 
with different values for consumeAutoHidingEvents? This seems to 
indicate that this would rather be an application setting.

On the other hand, if one of these two popups is a hint window it should 
never consume such events. Maybe the event should be consumed if at 
least one visible popup demands that.

Also, please allow me to mention RT-19953 once more which is about 
autoHide not working with JFXPanel. This issue will be quite visible in 
our Swing/FX application in autumn this year unless it gets fixed until
