Fix automatic timelapse recording

Freya Lupen requested to merge freyalupen/krita:freyalupen/bug-482378 into master

Commit 760c32e7 added checks in RecorderWriterManager::setup() and setCanvas() that stop recording if they are called twice. Auto recording was calling setup() twice from RecorderDockerDock::setCanvas(), which is avoidable.


However, there is another regression here. Opening another document triggers those new checks as well. This causes the first document to stop recording, seen by the REC dot not turning red, though the record button is still on.

Disabling these checks fixes this, but it still does not work correctly. Somehow, the second document's frames won't get saved, or one document's frames will get saved into both folders. (Needs further investigation...)

Test Plan

Fixed: Enable "Record automatically" in the Recorder, reopen the document. Recording should be on.

Not fixed: Open a document, enable recording. Open another document, then switch back to the first. Recording should be broken(!).
