That commit reports:

QUOTE
sh: implement persistent history storage
Implement persistent history storage:
the strategy is simple at start: loads the existing .sh_history file
at exit dump it.
. . .
END QUOTE

Does the shell in which something like a "shutdown -r now"
is typed cleanly "exit" so that the .sh_history file (or
other file if controlled) is reliably updated? What about
other shell's for possibly other logged-in accounts at the
time of such a reboot?

I'm not so sure that this bugzilla entry should be in the
"closed FIXED" state, even for main [So: 14].
