Visitor Log: De-duplicate repeated page views #2840

On a certain site in our Piwik, some users are particularly happy with their F5 buttons. They reload the page that lists the new forum posts, sometimes dozens of times in a row, waiting for new messages to arrive.

Since I couldn't find a de-duplication feature in Piwik, I hacked one in jQuery. It does its work unconditionally, since we have no need for configurability.

Attached are a patch and a screenshot of what the patched Visitor Log looks like.
