Bug#773736: caja: "Save as" dialog shows icon preview even if switched off

Package: caja
Version: 1.8.2-1
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

when saving a file (while using a browser, GIMP or any other program) the
dialog window shows inconsistent behaviour.

Let's suppose there is a folder ~/example which contains two files yes.jpg and
At some time in the past I did open yes.jpg with eom (which created a preview-
png in ~/.cache/thumbnails/normal) but I have never done so with no.jpg.

When opening ~/example in caja (list view with file preview switched off) both
files yes.jpg and no.jpg are represented by identical symbolic icons from the
icon set/desktop theme.

However when I use the "Save as"-dialog only no.jpg has the correct symbolic
icon whereas yes.jpg will have a picture preview.

I would expect both files to be shown with symbolic icons like in caja itself.
