I guess you use 'reboot' to reboot. As this forces a reboot immediately
(and closes all terminals), the shell has no chance to terminate
'normally' (i.e., by exit/ctrl-d/logout/etc) - therefore history is not
Check if the command history is saved if you do "shutdown -r now" and
hit ctrl-d immediately. I'd assume it does.
