Bug Description

This may be a bash bug - not sure.

If I have two terminals open why do they not know the history of each other? That is, I run a command in one window. The other window has no idea about the command. Why? I want to run the same command in another window. Or if the window I'm in hangs for some reason the command that I just executed is nowhere to be found.
