[Koha] forced to generate new barcode with EVERY item edit

Thank you Joshua and Jason!

Unclicking mandatory for the subfield kept me from being *forced* to 
generate a new barcode when editing the item data, however, if I didn't 
click on the field and generate a new barcode, the item would be saved 
without any barcode whatsoever, no with the old one. To give it a 
barcode again, I'd have to edit it again and click on the field, thus 
generating a new barcode. This happened even when autoBarcode was 
disabled. But this was on the right track.

What solved the problem for me was rather what Jason suggested, and that 
was deselected the plugin as being associated barcode.pl for the 
subfield (952p, in my case). The huge drawback to this is the 
autogeneration of the barcode doesn't work at all anymore, whether 
enabled or disabled. I can live with that.
