disable progress bar for non-downloading files

When using selective downloading and compact allocation is not used sometimes it seems as though deluge is still downloading files it's told not to download when pieces are shared between files.

This gets confusing for the end-user so I'd like to suggest that in such cases we disable the progress bar of those items that are set to 'Do not download'.

I do not agree. The progress bar indicates the state of a file so if its 25% complete and the user changes it to "Do Not Download" then disabling the progress bar would not be helpful because you have to enable it to see how much of the file you originally downloaded. Furthermore showing how much of a "DnD" file has been completed by shared pieces with other files can be useful, especially with small files and large pieces.
