Joe starts kdevelop4. Joe requests 3 different code coverage reports, which get 
initiated through a context menu action. kdevelop4 adds these 3 toolviews with 
IUiController->addToolView. Joe opens the 'add new tool view' box and finds 3 
'Coverage Report' entries there. Joe files a bugreport.

Problem being that addToolView does 2 different things:
1. register the factory
2. spawns the toolview (if areas are restored yet)

And yes, one could implement it with tabs/dropdownboxes in a single toolview 
instead of these throw-away views.

Prevent one-off views from being respawned on bootup.
