Maybe I should change my strategy.
I think this behaviour is "by design" -the fact that Calibre autogenerates screenshots of first page if the book has no cover.
I guess I could read all the changelogs and find out which version introduced this features, then reverting to a previous version. Still ... thats a tedious task and I was hoping the autogerenation of covers could be somehow prevented.
