Hmm. Right now I've unable (via the web interface) to permanently
delete a history - it stays stuck as "deleted", and thus (presumably)
won't get purged by the clean up scripts.

I've tried:

1. Load problem history
2. Rename the history "DIE DIE" to avoid confusion
3. Top right menu, "Delete permanently"
4. Prompted "Really delete the current history permanently? This
cannot be undone", OK
5. Told "History deleted, a new history is active"
6. Top right menu, "Saved Histories"
7. Click "Advanced Search", status "all"
8. Observe "DIE DIE" history is only "deleted" (while other older
histories are "deleted permanently") (BAD)
9. Run the cleanup scripts,

$ sh scripts/cleanup_datasets/delete_userless_histories.sh
$ sh scripts/cleanup_datasets/purge_histories.sh
$ sh scripts/cleanup_datasets/purge_libraries.sh
$ sh scripts/cleanup_datasets/purge_folders.sh
$ sh scripts/cleanup_datasets/purge_datasets.sh

10. Reload the saved history list, no change.
11. Using the drop down menu, select "Delete Permanently"
12. Prompted "History contents will be removed from disk, this cannot
be undone.  Continue", OK
13. No change to history status (BAD)
14. Tick the check-box, and use the "Delete Permanently" button at the
bottom of the page
15. Prompted "History contents will be removed from disk, this cannot
be undone.  Continue", OK
16. No change to history status (BAD)
17. Run the cleanup scripts, no change.

Note that in my universe_wsgi.ini I have not (yet) set:
allow_user_dataset_purge = True

If this setting is important, then the interface seems confused -
and if quotas are enforced, very frustrating :(
