If you have viewed history before in a browser window, that browser window's
history tree will not be updated after clicking the Clear Visited Pages button
in History prefs.

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Open browser window A, visit a few pages, leaving window A open.
1. View history in window A.
2. Clear history via button in prefs
3. View history in window A.
4. View history in a new window.

Actual results: window A's history is still the same as before, but the new
window's history is cleared as expected.  

Expected results: window A's history should have been cleared as well.

Notes: This only occurs if the history has been viewed in a window before.  If
not, there is no problem. Seems like overzealous caching to me.
sounds like something in the UI isn't getting the notification. simon?

Patch to respond to batching notifications

Here's the fix: respond to the batching notifications from the history service,
and reload the world at the end of a batch.
