Remove "auto home" script

I'm not sure why it was added, but every since the site overhaul there's been some kind of script enabled which will periodically cause the page to return to the front page. This is most common when switching window (such as having opened a thread in a separate tab) and then switching back. It serves no purpose that I can determine other than to be a nuisance - especially given it doesn't happen every time, meaning you're unlikely to cancel it without thinking.

If I could accurately determine what function was causing it I'd block it myself. And, yes, I realise it's a minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things. But it's an inconvenience which was deliberately added, and there's no reason to accept those as it only serves to encourage more significant poor practices in future.
