Description of problem:
This is rawhide.
The "Clear Recent documents" button has not worked for me reliably since
it was first introduced (a long time ago).

and opened in gedit. Not sure what that means - they were downloaded in ~/tmp,
and are no longer there, probably...
So I can keep clicking on Clear Recent Documents, and it has no effect of any
kind. Then when I open a local file, all the documents in question disappear,
and I can clear the local fine just fine.
...but on the other hand, creating a file, opening it, then deleting it,
and trying to clear recent documents works just fine. I'm not sure what the
