Summary0005272: taler-exchange-wirewatch fails to initialize some global variables, causing it to crash sometimes
DescriptionThe wire-watch tool used to fail with the following message.

demo-blue@tripwire:~$ taler-exchange-wirewatch -t test
Feb 05 15:20:16-401573 taler-exchange-wirewatch-17335 ERROR Assertion
failed at plugin_wire_test.c:958.
Feb 05 15:20:16-401685 taler-exchange-wirewatch-17335 ERROR Failed to
start request for account history!

The failure happened when 'demo' got upgraded to the latest master branch
(commit 111f8f23..). However, a DB reset managed to work-around this
issue and make 'demo' live again.

A closer look needs to be taken around this situation!

In particular last_row_off is used but never properly initialized (it's a static variable, so it will always be initialized to 0)
