Meld creates files such as these:


and shows the history in

   files -> open recent

I looked in preferences how to disable this, but did not find any option.

When I make the directory ~/.local/share/meld/ unwritable, meld reports
error and does not even start:

PermissionError: [Errno 1] Operation not permitted:

I consider this history "feature" as evil. The idea of opening files
from history instead of from file paths seems confusing. How do you
distinguish files with same names, but in different locations ?

Anyways, How can I disable this misfeature?
If there is no option in preferences, can somebody suggest how to modify
the python code to disable this ?

can somebody please advise how to disable this evil "recent" feature in
meld ?
