Fix event and file accounting in the GEM readout applications

Laurent Petre requested to merge bugfix/events-readout into main


This MR aims at fixing the event and file accounting in the GEM readout applications. Namely,

  1. The first index file should now contain the nominal 10,000 events and not twice this number.
  2. The first event for each file shouldn't be dropped.

In addition, the maximal number of events per index file is now configurable.
