qtwayland-config: Do not enable by default resize after swap env variable
In our use-cases applications do not specify a size for the windows, leaving qtwayland itself to create an initial size for the surface (a 500 by 500 size). The compositor will send a configure event back to the application with the available/actual geometry area, resulting in resize performed by the application. This, in tandem with the fact that we tweaked qtwayland to perform the resize (due to SPEC-3334) after a buffer swap results in a short flicker -- the application does an initial commit with that initial size but with no background or any information attached to it. The environmental variable tunes the repainting mechanism in qtwayland affecting the way the resize is performed and was added when multiple or split surfaces are in use. Destroying one of them will not cause a scale back to the original area. We therefore disable by default that environment variable and leave it to the applications to enable it at start-up, if they still want to use split type of surfaces. Added a rather big comment about why that might necessary giving some clues and some mention that qtwayland doesn't make a distinction for the value of the environmental variable itself.
