diodon / clipit logs copious sensitive information to zeitgeist and does not clear it

This is how I feel about zeitgeist and diodon colluding to record over 500MB of everything I cut and paste, including server passwords, URLs of smut, and so forth.

# sudo apt purge diodon zeitgeist-core
# cd ~/.local/share/
# shrrec zeitgeist/

Thank you! I hadn't looked at how much info zeitgeist and it's many plugins were keeping... if nothing else it's a bit of a disk waster when (like me) there are several local accounts doing this. May well follow your lead and nuke it.
