CKAN's internal tracking counts each view twice, needs unit tests

CKAN's internal tracking seems to count each page view twice, the problem appears to be with the SQL in the update_tracking() method in ckan/lib/cli.py.

The internal tracking feature needs some tests, and some of the code could maybe do with some more explanatory comments, e.g. what is the intended difference between count and running_total?

Note that this commit fixes the double-counting for page views:


but not for resource downloads (which look like they could have the exact same fix) but I'm not particularly happy about the fix because I don't fully understand the SQL.

It still needs unit tests and to be fixed properly, for both pages and resources

Talked with kindly, seems the above fix is correct and should be applied to resources as well
