[ardour-dev] Minor annoyance, minor suggestion

Situation: Make sure "Show waveforms while recording" in option editor 
is toggled off; create new session, add tracks, start recording -> 
waveforms appear while recording (i.e., even though "Show waveforms 
while recording" is toggled off).  The only reason this is important to 
me is that the recent changes to the display routines eliminate xruns 
for me when I don't follow the playhead and when the waveforms are not 
shown while recording. This has eliminated a major source of headaches 
for me and I _really_ appreciate the work that has gone into this aspect 
of ardour.  Thanks to all!  But, I always have to click on, then off the 
"Show waveforms while recording" button after starting a new session 
with new tracks so that the waveforms are not drawn while recording.

The following minor change produces the expected behavior (new tracks 
don't show waveforms while recording if the button is off).  A minor 
thing, but I find it helpful.
