Bug Description

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/share/recently-used.xbel. The option that once was present in nautilus to forget recent files does not exist anymore.

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).
