enable-next-button.rb - a test case

(Found while testing https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1093358 )

In the ncurses UI, some buttons may have function key shortcuts, most notably F10 for Next and F9 for Back. These function keys are listed in a status line at the bottom of the screen.
When some buttons are enabled/disabled with UI.ChangeWidget(Id(:next), :Enabled, true/false), the status line may not get updated.

One workaround is to call UI.ReplaceWidget, even an Empty one. (so that OptimizeChanges calls doneMultipleChanges and eventually NCurses::SetStatusLine)
