[erlang-questions] clarify: Shell Crash on Compilation

Most likely there was a reference from the history list to some code
that was purged by calling c(flux_http_handshake).
See also http://www.erlang.org/doc/man/code.html, "Current and Old Code".
By default the shell saves 20 commands and results in the history list.
You can change this by for instance 'results(1)' or 'history(1)'.
