Carefull here. You suggest to prune the list if captures aren't found. What happens when captures are on a network share you forgot to mount?
Or even more likely, your Notebook is simply not connected to the/any network :-)
Then your list would be gone, while you did not intend to have them pruned.
Yes, there's also a related (much older) comment in main_menu.c that we should not simply get rid of a recent file entry just because the file is currently not available - for the exact same reason.
