Have you tried bash 4.4?

See: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-bash/2015-12/msg00202.html

  address@hidden:~$ history -c
  address@hidden:~$ declare -p HISTFILE HISTTIMEFORMAT
  declare -- HISTFILE="/tmp/zzz"
  declare -- HISTTIMEFORMAT="%s"
  address@hidden:~$ echo 'a
  > b
  > c'
  a
  b
  c
  address@hidden:~$ history -w
  address@hidden:~$ history -c; history -r; HISTTIMEFORMAT= history
      1  declare -p HISTFILE HISTTIMEFORMAT
      2  echo 'a
  b
  c'
      3  history -w
