with the current bash used in ubuntu 11.04 there no longer is a
~/.bash_history created
If there is an existing ~/.bash_history in place or one is inadvertently
created, *see below, then it will not be written to

If one was to crash the system while a command was running in a terminal
then a ~/.bash_history would be created if not already and the running
command would be saved to it.
That is the only way commands are saved to the history or the file
created in the absence of pre-existing one
