Summary0006893: OSPD-Openvas ignoring "Consider Alive" setting in targets

Option “Consider Alive” don’t have effect against targets that is blocking “ping tests”.

Steps To Reproduce

Create target on any URI witch is alive but ICMP packets blocked with option "Alive test" value "Consider alive".
Scan task always rise error.
/var/log/gvm/openvas.log contains
"The remote host x.x.x.x is dead"

Additional Information
The selected alive test option overwrite the default settings.
The issue was that the preferences where added twice, but always
the default ones were used because were found first.
Run a scan with some alive test method different to the default one. An easy tests is to select "consider alive" against a dead hosts.
