Bug Description

When Show Preview is off in the Open File dialog, Inkscape still calculates preview which leads to terrible slowdown. Even when I know which file I need and disable preview, if the file is any large or contains some filters, I have to wait till its preview is calculated to open it. This is very irritating.

Attached backport of r10541 to the stable branch has been tested successfully with 0.48.x r9963 on OS X 10.7.5: if file preview is toggled off, the previews are no longer calculated.

Please review (the merge of r10541 into 0.48.x failed with a minor text conflict, fixed in attached patch).

Proposing to include the fix for 0.48.5.
