bash history not restored

No matter what I do, I can't seem to make bash restore the command
history from .bash_history when it starts.  During a session,
interactive history mode works; moreover, current history is saved to
the file when session ends.  But the next session will again start with
empty history :-[

Running Cygwin-b20.1, NT Workstation SP4, FAT fs, text mount.

What am I overlooking?
