Unhappy Caibre removes cover image

Hi,

using calibre 0.7.50

When I add an epub book to calibre the cover image is being removed.

One of the preferences seems to have been changed but I can't find it!

Hope someone can point me in the right direction.

The cover already inside does not automatically show in the book browser.

Convert has a option to remove first cover (inside). Calibre can add a Jacket that has a cover..

I've done a bit more investigating.

Calibre is not the culprit. Sigil is causing the problem.

The books in question are from Penguin. The cover image is stored in the html file as inline svg data. When I open the epub in Sigil this code is stripped out and the cover disappears.
