Terminal history gone.

I cannot get any recent version of FreeBSD 8.* to keep the csh or tcsh history across a "reboot" in root or usr. It stays after "exit" and a new login however.

Does the history stick around if you do "shutdown -r now" instead of "reboot"?

No. I used shutdown -r now and shutdown -h now and they both blow it away.

My thinking was that reboot is more abrupt than shutdown, and killed the shell without giving it a chance to write out the history.

But I've never noticed the history in a csh being written out before a reboot of either type.
