Description of problem:
Yelp won't load Gnome help docs after system crash.

If my system dies unexpectedly while I have help docs open in yelp then, once
I've rebooted, if I try to look at the Gnome help docs (ie Main Menu->Help),
then I only see the info and man page sections, and not the Gnome desktop help
sections.

This can be rectified by deleting the scrollkeeper files in /tmp.

There should be some way to detect this problem and to rectify it without user
intervention.

Version-yelp-1.0.2


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open help
2.Kill the power
3.Reboot and try to open help again -->fails
4.Delete scrollkeeper files in /tmp
5.Open help again-->succeeds
	

Actual Results:  Failed to open the Gnome desktop help sections until I had
deleted the scrollkeeper temp files in /tmp

It's probably the silly max five tempfiles, no cleanup scrollkeeper issue. It
needs to be fixed.
