Chrome Version       : 32.0.1678.0
OS Version: 4856.0.0

What steps will reproduce the problem?

1. Sign in
2. Press Ctrl+Shift+N to open an incognito window
3. Enable Japanese (or Chinese or whatever) IME
4. Click Omnibox
5. Type a sensitive or embarrassing word several times.
6. Switch back to a normal Chrome window.
7. Click Omnibox
8. Type a word whose prefix is the same as the sensitive word typed in 5.

What is the expected result?

In step 8, the word entered in 5 should never be suggested.

What happens instead of that?

It is suggested.

Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if

Please turn off the "learning" feature by default when in Incognito window. I feel like this is a privacy issue.

I only tested nacl-mozc (for Japanese) but Chrome OS IMEs for other languages might have the same issue. Kenji, please cc: Input Tools folks if that is the case.
