I use this strategy with bash, so YMMV:
$ vim .bash_history
$ kill -9 $$
$$ should expand to the pid of the running shell; if it doesn't in tcsh,
sub it out yourself.
The kill -9 prevents the shell from doing it's normal exit stuff (like
writing out the history) and just kills the process. You'll need to kill
-9 any shell that you launched while the "bad" line was in the history
