    I found this hack in the Ubuntu forums:

    Code:
    rm ~/.recently-used.xml
    rm ~/.recently-used.xbel
    mkdir ~/.recently-used.xbel
    It removes the documents from the menu completely.

    chief sealth,

    I've added the commands below to the user's ~/.profile to have it wiped
    automatically upon each login;

    #Remove the recently used documents
    rm .recently-used
    rm .recently-used.xbel
