csh & tcsh history missing after reboot FBSD_8

Terminal history gone.

I cannot get any recent version of FreeBSD 8.* to keep the csh or tcsh 
history across a "reboot" in root or usr. It stays after "exit" and a 
new login however. This happens on several machines that previously ran 
FreeBSD 7* with no issues. One runs AMD64 and one i386 versions.I can 
load Manolis Kiagias Desk top version on them and it works fine as do 
other 7.* versions.

I suspect it has to do with PXE ? or something changed in the later 
versions of 8 Current & BETA 1 and 2 since I have 2 boxes running early 
versions of 8 CURRENT where everything works fine and the history 
remains in tact following a reboot.

What can I do to get the history to remain in memory across a reboot? 
Changing the capicity of set history to greater than 100 does not affect it.
