It's odd, apparently on windows it accidentally is able to use the OS
(command line window) history...But it's the same code, so not sure
why it works (only) there. I've noticed that if you exit ij, change
directories, go back and start ij again, (at least I think that's the
sequence of events), the history stops working on windows too.

There's been a bug logged to get history working in ij, and some
attempt has been made to fix this, but it hasn't gone anywhere, see
