Bug Description

Shell plugin caches category models indefinately (only hides them if they have no results) based on their IDs. This means that if scopes create categories with unique IDs on every search, we will never reclaim that memory back.

While scopes should never do that, some actually do - these scopes will be fixed (https://bugs.launchpad.net/scope-aggregator/+bug/1507666) but shell plugin should also be smater and remove unused categories.
