Pasting styles from blurred objects sets all new objects to be blurred by default

Bug Description

I am using V0.92.4. Relevant SVG has been attached.

This bug arises if any object has previously been blurred using the "Paste Style" command. The issue is that setting blur to 0.0% removes the blur filter, but new objects are still blurred. In XML editor, the filter tag is indeed removed when the blur is set to 0.0%, however new objects are still blurred anyway, with new objects pointing to the old filter URL in XML editor. I believe this is actually a bug in the tool preference "Style of new objects -> Last used style" or in the "Paste Style" command rather than in the actual SVG code.

This bug also arises from copying styles from filtered objects (not just blurred ones) and pasting them using Ctrl + Shift + V (or Edit -> Paste Style). All new objects will now have that filter applied by default. This issue is particularly prevalent when using blurred objects, because setting the blur to 0.0% has no effect on new objects.

The bug can be fixed by selecting a new object and using the "Remove Filters" command, or deleting every object with the old filter URL, or restarting Inkscape.

A secondary bug is that, when the primary bug above is in effect, pasting the style of an unblurred object onto a blurred object will NOT remove the blur. This is not normal behaviour.
