(Thanks, I'm too lazy to compile from source and retrieve all the
gdb-isms I used to know (not too many...).)

Ah. I prefer to avoid that -- it's important to me to have a working
environment, and hacking a simple history save/load thing is very
easy (and zsh still does it's thing with the history when it's
running, so I'm not really losing anything).

Too big to attach, so I've put the results in the same place
(tmp.barzilay.org/zsh). (My environment is roughly the same on Cygwin
and a bunch of Unix/Linux platforms, I don't have anything special in
my cygwin setup.)

I meant CC me, as opposed to replying only to the list. Gmane is a
mailing-list->news gateway which makes it easy to read mailing lists
as newsgroups -- but I don't check it too often. (And drowning in
mailing lists, which is why Gmane can be very convenient.)
