Utils: Delay saving of treeview column sizes while resizing

As discussed in the linked report, QSettings behavior was changed to
aggressively attempt to sync on each ::setValue() call, therefore causing
excessive disk thrashing when used regularly.

This is arguably a regression on the QSettings side, specifically as the
documentation suggests some kind of delay and therefore merging of quick
sequences of setValue calls (as implemented previously), but since this
opinion is not generally shared, Qt applications need to implement that
behavior now by themselves.

This patch here does that for the reported case in Creator (and uses the
opportunity to delay to 2 secs, which should be sufficient for the case)
