Interesting, this is only effecting root, when I create a new user, command 
history works fine.  Root's shell is bash.  Same behavior for bash2.  BTW, 
command history works fine in csh.  Even for root, but I don't like csh.  And 
I don't see anything in root's .bashrc or /etc/bashrc file either. hmmmmm.  
Maybe it's something to do with key mappings or term type.  I cannot back arrow 
in the command line either.

And if anyone could recommend a mail list for these types of questions, I'd love
to hear from you!


Well, thanks again for the input, sorry to be off topic.

zsh supports it too *grin*
