we've just received a bug report stating that adding

history -s "foo"

to .bashrc doesn't have any effect (verified) in 2.05 (it did in

echo 'history -s "Microsoft sucks"' >foo.sh
. ./foo.sh

continues to work as expected.

Actually in my report I showed that "history -s" works in .bash_profile, but not when it is in a control structure. I haven't tried it in .bashrc at all.

My full report is available at

Is this change intentional?

I'd still like to know this :-)
