Torbutton interferes with "Clear private data when firefox closes" setting

I discovered that, once the Torbutton extension is installed and active, the "Clear private data when Firefox closes" privacy setting seems to be no longer effective. At least (non-tor) history and (non-tor) form data is not cleared on exit. The explicit "clear private data" menu entry does not work anymore either.

This is with Torbutton 1.1.17-alpha on Firefox, with all other Firefox extensions disabled. Disabling the Torbutton extension restores the clear private data functionality.

I have this exact same problem. I've actually had this for quite some time but didn't realize torbutton was the cause until now. Torbutton is the only add-on I have installed and I discovered that this functionality which has been lost was restored when I ran Firefox in safe mode to try and finally find the cause, sure enough it was torbutton. It would be great if it were fixed! :)

I also have this problem. I'm using version of Firefox and version 1.1.17-alpha of torbutton.
I uninstalled Firefox, then the Vidalia bundle and cleared all old Firfox files. I then reinstalled Firefox and the Vidalia Bundle. I've still got the problem.
