The GUI history panel shows all commands in the interpreter history and normally is synchronized with the true history available using readline history. However, if the history_control("erasedups") option is enabled, previous history commands matching the last entered command are removed from the readline history. They remain visible in the history panel. When the GUI exits and restarts, the history is correct because it has been reread from the correct readline history.

This is probably very much a corner case, and the impact is only that duplicate history commands are left in the GUI panel until the GUI exits and is started again.
