Hey guys,

this is a SVN patch request.

Branches: Trunk only

BT reference: http://bugs.typo3.org/view.php?id=6967

Right now there is an option called "Show Thumbnails" on the bottom of 
the filelist that says "Show Thumbnails". This feature is:
+ first of all, not directory / page related
+ double in its use, as there is an option in the user=>setup called 
"Show Thumbnails By Default" (uc-"thumbnailsByDefault") which takes 

This means: If the user has the option checked in his user settings, the 
option in the file list becomes useless (= it shows the icons all the 
time). And after all, if the option should be there, it should be a 
shortcut of the same option as the user setup and not some extra option 

Therefore I propose to remove the option in the file_list.php because:
- People think it does not work if they have this option enabled in the 
user => setup already.
- People are confused having to options that do the same but are stored 
in the user profile differently and therefore do not behave as they expect.
- If people want to change the BE interface, they should look in the 
user => setup. Therefore this module becomes used more again and again 
(I'll take care of the setup module itself later btw...).
- The interface get's cleaner :)

I could agree on turning the User => Setup option on by default. this is 
a small switch in "t3lib/class.t3lib_beuserauth.php". What do you think?
