Improve Size & Pos UI; use max buffer height by default #1604

You may ping me on Twitter or LinkedIn. But I think that GitHub is perfect for conversation.
Let me explain. Unless ConEmu architecture is fully rewritten and it depends on conhost, there is absolutely no way to create buffer longer than 32K lines.
But there are good news: Microsoft console team is working on new API and ConEmu part will become somewhat easier.
This change is necessary. When the user enters 222222 or 111111, ConEmu now switches to 32766.
If we revert this, users will get confused when they try to enter 222222. The user’s goal is to max out the value. Without this change, 222,222 will max out at 22,222, not 32,766 as expected.
Same for 111111.
