Clearing the "history" of xfrun4?

$ locate xfrun_history

It can also be in .config/xfce4/xfrun_history.

Not sure why, but xfrun wasn't getting my history from them. Strace
reveals another file... (The first below is a xffm one)
$ locate runlist

Removing that second file, cleared my history... (Something I've been
meaning to do for awhile)

On that note, how does that file decide what to display first, and why
are we using some DB format, instead of the old plain text format?
