It means that something's going wrong with writing the history file that
isn't setting errno to anything useful. Exactly what, I don't know.

makehistory -u doesn't really rebuild the history database, just generates
those lines that correspond to articles not already in the history
database. You may want to rebuild it completely from scratch.

I think that CNFS is unlikely to help much here if there's something wrong
with the history file. :/
