Private Beta Build v0.40 - DropDown auto-scroll, hand positions corrected, and more

============================
IMPORTANT NOTES:

Use PiTool version 1.0.1.264 Beta (or later). PVRHome beta updates do NOT include PiTool anymore, because its not needed anymore.
Just get latest PiTool 1.0.1.264 here: Pitool 1.0.1.264 Beta
And simply replace the content of PVRHome folder (read how-to below)

============================
Beta v0.40 Release Notes:

1 Dropdowns: Dropdown menus now AUTO-scroll to the selected item (finally!). Makes it so much easier to browse through dropdown menus and get back to previous value or just move to next.

2. Dropdowns: Added checkbox to selected item in dropdown. Slight UI change in dropdowns.

3. Hand Modes: Fixed hand (pointer) position for all new Hand models, so the pointers (circles) correctly matches the finger top positions.

4. Game-page: Corrected “Launcher” information for custom imported games, now it shows "SteamVR/PiTool/Runtime) depending on what is set for the imported game.

5. Recenter popup: Recenter-popup corrently hides and shows now (found a bug). Popup is shown the first 3 times PE launches. Later, its hidden.

6. SteamVR Backup file namagement: SteamVR config file automatic backup is made only ONCE per day now, so config backups only have date in name now, not time. (otherwise too many files were created, basically every time you launch a game with SteamVR profile set)

7. Fix: Further improved cleaning up values and fields in Settings/dropdowns/selectors to free up some RAM when pages are closed.
