Impossible to override action appearance

Bug Description

Binary package hint: glade-3

When saving a glade file that contains a button or a menu item based on an action but overriding its appearance, the following line will, erroneously, *not* be part of the file:

<property name="use_action_appearance">False</property>

But unless this line is added to such a button or menu item, the default action appearance will be used by GtkBuilder. Manually adding the line is possible, but it will be discarded again when the file is loaded and saved the next time using glade.

In the following demo, the button will have the label "The label of the GtkAction", unless "<property name="use_action_appearance">False</property>" is added manually to demo.ui. This very line will be lost when loading and saving demo.ui using glade the next time.
