Bug Description

Computer Janitor (no matter if it's GUI 'computer-janitor' or CLI 'computer-janitor-gtk') shows outdated info after manual cleaning:
1) launch the Computer Janitor, let it show you the unneeded packages & configs;
2) close Computer Janitor, remove some unneeded items manually;
3) open the Computer Janitor again -- it still shows the items you just have removed manually (and there's no 'Update/Refresh' option).

I confirm this bug:

$ computer-janitor find
removable file:/etc/php5/conf.d/apc.ini.dpkg-old

$ ls -l /etc/php5/conf.d/apc.ini.dpkg-old
ls: cannot access /etc/php5/conf.d/apc.ini.dpkg-old: No such file or directory

I removed the file manually, and computer-janitor thinks it's still there.
