Bash Version: 2.05
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

Description:
        GNU bash, version 3.00.0(1)-release (sparc-sun-solaris2.9)
        (bashbug picked up the installed version, not the one I just built, and
        from which I just ran bashbug)
        For some reason, bash is not recording history in this build.  The 
history
        number stays stuck at 1 and I can't do any history editing.  It works 
just
        fine in the freebsd port, so I don't think it's a generic bash 
problem...

Start looking at your environment.  Look at what `set -o' says about
history, and look at the values of the various HIST* shell variables.
(HISTSIZE, HISTIGNORE, etc.).
