ecent commands are in there for convenience (up and down arrows to get previous commands back). However the personal.newAccount() should have the password redacted unless there is something that clears it out often.

For users: the history file is easily zeroed out with the following unix command:
true > ~/.ethereum/history

And recognize that the currently running geth process writes to the history when it exits, so zero the history out after exiting geth.
