Auto-remove "dead" tabs, when referenced documents are deleted

There should be a user-selectable option to auto-remove "dead" tabs.

In the current implementation, there is a problem.


  • Open a document
  • Switch to View (=switch another tab)
  • In the View, delete the document that was previously opened
  • Switch back to document tab (referencing deleted document)

As a result, the deleted document will be displayed from cache.

With dozens of open tabs, this may be confusing and cause inefficient workflows for users.

With the auto-remove option enabled, tabs should automatically disappear, when users delete referenced documents.

As a bonus, there may be even a periodic cleanup task, which checks on "dead" tabs (both documents and databases).
