So it seems, yes.

Since I found the option in the menu this second behaviour is what one would
expect. I think however that it would somehow bloat the program with
something not really needed: much simpler is advising the user to prepare
the image before inserting it in the doc.

So after looking up the possible bug report in bugzilla,  finding

which is already almost 4 years old ...

Yes, and it would result in bloating.

It's the reasonable thing to do.

Thanks a  lot, Pedro.
