I use a profile which is renewed last time the 23-09-2003. Before, I never used
download manager for downloads, every time the progress dialog. Last time, I had
 many errors (could not read file) downloading the daily firefox nightly. That
might be bug 295840. 
That is why I switched to the download manager. Now, I found a giant list of
about 10.000 files I downloaded in the last half year (since beginning 12/2003).
This list could not be deleted in one, every file had to be clicked to remove
them all from the list. Every image saved via "save image" was fond in the list,
that is bug 143949.
Having cleared this list, the download problems were gone.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download files with Mozilla using the progress dialog without changing profile.
2. Change to the download manager.
3. Find a list of all downloads.

Actual Results:  
Giant list of all downloads ever done. Ennoying deleting click by click.

Expected Results:  
Mozilla should not create a hidden list of "download history" which is not to
delete using the "Clear Cache" or the "Clear History" butten. There should be a
possibility (like in firefox) to remove this download history.

This is still present in latest seamonkey trunk builds. It had been confirmed by 
R.K.Aa. I agree that its a dupe of bug #182045.
