[O] [BUG] org clock history no longer loaded from org-clock-persist-file

With the shift to lexical-binding in org-clock.el (commit
35bc1c8853c5cfe37930e3540a944a328af5198b), the function org-load-clock
fails to load the stored data in org-clock-persist-file.

These are the relevant setting in my .emacs:

(setq org-clock-persist t)
(setq org-clock-persist-file "~/data/org-clock-save.el")

Expected result: After calling the agenda for the first time, the
variable org-clock-history is populated with data.

Actual result: org-clock-history remains nil.

As far as I can tell, the problem lies with the call to load-file (line
2986). Because of the lexical binding, the (setq stored-clock-history
....) statement stored in the org-clock-persist-file is evaluated but
because of the lexical scoping it has no effect on the
stored-clock-history in org-clock-load.

Ironically, this also means that stored-clock-history is defined as an
irrelevant global variable even while it remains undefined within
org-load-clock as a local variable. (Before lexical binding, the
opposite was the case: the call to load-file bound stored-clock-history
locally, but not globally).
