Commenting out HISTFILE means no history will be written. Are there any
special permissions/ownership on ~/.history ? Is this file being used
by, say, bash or some other file at the same time? Might could be a
locking issue, but it's strange that it just now is occuring. Try
changing the name of HISTFILE to something else, like ~/.zhistory and see
if it still hangs.
