  Log Message:
  ovsdb monitor: Fix crash when using non-zero last-id with standalone DB.

When a client uses monitor-cond-since with a non-zero last-id but the
server is not in cluster mode for the DB being monitored, it leads to
segmentation fault because the txn_history list is not initialized in
this case.

Program terminated with signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Although it doesn't happen in normal use cases, no one can prevent a
client to send this on purpose or in a corner case when a client firstly
connected to a clustered DB but later the server restarted with a
non-clustered DB.

This patch fixes it by always initialize the txn_history list to avoid
the undefined behavior in this case. It adds a test case to cover it, too.
