While submitting my previous bug report (on trap) I was surprised to
get odd history sequence numbers from a subshell:

        bow:487> bash
        bow:2:500> trap 1 2 15
        bow:2:499> kill -15 $$
        bash: 1: command not found
        bow:2:498> ls
        pc140004.jpg  pc140026.jpg  pc160053.jpg  pc160060.jpg  pc160070.jpg
        pc140007.jpg  pc140028.jpg  pc160054.jpg  pc160061.jpg  pc160075.jpg
        pc140008.jpg  pc150034.jpg  pc160057.jpg  pc160063.jpg
        pc140011.jpg  pc150035.jpg  pc160058.jpg  pc160064.jpg
        pc140012.jpg  pc160052.jpg  pc160059.jpg  pc160068.jpg
        bow:2:492> echo a
        bow:2:493> echo b
        bow:2:494> echo c
        bow:2:495> exit

I'll look into it, though I'm sure it has something to do with the
default value of HISTSIZE being 500.
