Clearing history in privacy settings don't clear file history in gnome2 apps
If you choose "clear history" in privacy settings (from gnome control center), it will claer history in the dash, activity log manager, etc... BUT last opened files are not cleared from gnome2 apps (eg. Totem).
To do so, the user has to play with ./local/
I don't really know if privacy settings belong to zeitgeist or not, and I understand they are designed to interact with zeitgeist daemon, but from a user perspective, "clear history" should really also clear gnome2 apps recent history (especially Totem, which is the default player).
