lok: sc: tunneling the ascii import dialog on paste action

Modified CreateScImportAsciiDlg signature so that we are able to pass
a pointer to a dialog parent window to ScImportAsciiDlg.

Now the execution of the ScImportAsciiDlg dialog in
ScViewFunc::PasteDataFormat is asynchronous, both for lok and desktop
case. In order to achieve this result it has been needed to modify the
lifespan of some objects previously local to PasteDataFormat.

These internal LO dialogs surely can be called via UNO API, but they are not part of the API that we guarantee API stability for.

So in this case (and it will probably be the same for most of the dialogs), the change to async was intentional and, even if it resulted in a change of behavior, it is not a bug.
