scrollRect now doesn’t work on html5

I can reproduce the scrollRect issue in 9.2.1. It seems to work in some cases, but not others.

Edit: Narrowed it down to this commit: openfl/openfl@971a4c9. It was intended to fix the coordinates of scissor rectangles in Starling, but it looks like maybe the fix is incomplete.

Edit 2: Fixed in commit openfl/openfl@da0463a.

Edit 3: Fix released in OpenFL 9.2.2 on May 31, 2023
