Minor release fixing a terrible file-bloat.

Leftover local blocklist files were not deleted
which resulted in ever-increasing app size.
Worse still, users had no way to delete these
except 'clear data'.

Now, the leftover files, if any, are deleted on every
blocklist download run.

Leftovers are also handled for remote blocklist files.
