ListView places old `currentItem` under new `currentItem` during a model append

      When a ListView has more items than it can fit in its viewport, it keeps the `currentItem` around even if it is not in the viewport.  But if that item is near the end, a new item is added to the end of the model, and that new item is set as the `currentIndex`, the old `currentItem` is erroneously moved to the new `currentItem` location (and becomes hidden underneath it).


      I tested 3 versions of Qt.  5.15.7 and 6.2.2 have this issue.  5.15.1 does not have this issue.  I've attached a simple test program that can reproduce this error.

      To reproduce (generic steps)

      1. Have a ListView with more items than it can visibly fit.
      2. Scroll to the end.
      3. Select the second from the last item.
      4. Scroll to the beginning.
      5. Click a button that adds a new item to the end of the ListView's model and set that new index as the current index.
      6. The previously selected item will appear to be gone (but it is just underneath the last item)

      To reproduce (attached example program)

      1. Scroll to the end.
      2. Select `Item 18`.  (screenshot attached)
      3. Scroll to the beginning.
      4. Click `New Item`.
      5. `Item 18` is now hidden under `Item 20`.  (screenshot attached)

      Following those steps with the attached program will result in this message in the console (full console is also attached):

      >:( Delegate for index 18 is at the wrong location (x = 4000)

      (speculation) This seems to be a case that because the ListView is also creating a new item because of the appended item, it calculates a bad `x` value for what was the `currentItem` before setting `currentItem` to the new item.
