Bug#410123: klipper: clearing the clipboard does not clear the clipboard history

Package: klipper
Version: 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-5
Severity: wishlist

I think 'clear clipboard' should clear the clipboard history file.
(Currently, the file is only cleared if one empties the clipboard and
 then saves the empty clipboard on program exit.)

Suppose that, after using klipper for some days, user does two things:
 -- clears the clipboard
 -- changes from "save clipboard contents" to "don't save"

Then user's old, already-saved clipboard remains on file at
and will happily remain there for months.

This is unlikely to be what the user wanted to achieve.  It's so
unexpected that it should probably be considered a 'normal' bug.
