I've done all the googleing I could and still can't find an answer to 
this.  This is making working with the shell
very difficult since one slip up and my history is gone.  Am I missing 
something here?

Erlang R13A (erts-5.7) [source] [smp:4:4] [rq:4] [async-threads:0] 

Eshell V5.7  (abort with ^G)
1> catch_exception(true).
2> bogus().
