Re: Odd command line recall problem

Latest cygwin64 release as of posting on Windows 7x64
GNU bash, version 4.1.11(2)-release
Running in the cygwin terminal (C:\cygwin64\bin\mintty.exe -i

The several commands I use all recall correctly using the up-arrow key. That
is, I type a command, it executes, I can recall it via up-arrow. Duplicate
commands are collapsed to one command.

However, this command seems to disappear from the history:

*tac gman.out | gawk -f ../../findStuckPestJobs.awk*

Immediately after issuing the command, up-arrow brings back the command
prior to the tac... command.
Further experimentation shows, for instance, that a simple

*tac --help*

command disappears also. Issuing a history command within the shell doesn't
list it!

cygwin problem? Or is this a bash problem?

Hard to say with the information so far.  It at least works fine for me
with a quick test on 32-bit Cygwin.  If you're still looking for help,
please read the problem reporting guidelines found at the link below prior
to your follow-up with the list.
