The problem you described is a known issue. It is fixed with the
series of patches available for Bash (or was it Readline?). Either
way, it is fixed in post-LFS-6.0 stuff. Too bad this wasn't caught
in time to get in the LFS-6.0 book.

The behavior you describe using the history is a hassle for guys
like you and I that use the history feature.
