Snapping to switched off layers

1. Open two vector layers, for example layer1 and layer2;
2. Settings - Project Properties - Snapping options. Check layer1 and set any tolerance of snapping;
3. Turn off layer1 in TOC. Try to edit layer2. Snapping to switched off layer1 is active.
I suppose it would be good idea to turn off snapping to switched off layers.

In my opinion, we should not overwrite the snap settings based on the visibility of layers. It would lead to an inconsistent state of the snap settings dialog (where the layer still is marked for snapping).
And it is not totally impossible that a user sets snapping to a non-visible layer. So better separate the properties snappable and visible.
