Using image-mode to visit image files touches directory modification
dates.  This is especially annoying when image files are in an old
archive.  The problem is in the function `add-text-properties' that
temporarily modifies the image buffer causing lock-file to create a lock
file in the current directory that modifies the directory timestamp.

As a solution I propose to let-bind `buffer-file-truename' to nil
around the call to `add-text-properties' to prevent directory time
modification:

Maybe it would be better (after the release) to improve
`add-text-properties' to not modify the current buffer
(with a new flag to keep the default behavior unchanged).
This is an old problem with buffers that don't save text properties,
so modifying them is meaningless and sometimes harmful.

Done.
