A quick summary.  The reported problem appears to be with (some) previous
histories. If you find that neither up arrow nor ctrl-P work in the Rgui
console, please delete .Rhistory and try again.

We don't know the exact cause, and nothing I can think of can reproduce
this. I have no problem taking histories made with rw1001 and reading them
in rw1010 and vice versa.

If the .Rhistory is really important, you could try reading it into an
editor and adding a couple of blank lines at the end.  Or you can save it
under another name, display it in a pager and submits lines from there.

Uwe Ligges made a very good point: please try starting R with --vanilla
before reporting problems.  Many reports have boiled down to problems
with saved .RData or .Rhistory files.
