[Bf-committers] Gravity under Smoke does opposite than tooltip says

The density of the flow object defines the initial density of the smoke
that's created (from each particle). The new density (previously
"gravity") setting of the domain defines how much the current density at
any point of the smoke effects upwards force at that point. Similarly the
flow object gives the smoke some initial heat (which changes during the
simulation), and the "heat" setting of the domain defines how much the
heat difference to the ambient temperature effects the upwards force of
the smoke at that point.
