Using 'hg log libinterp/corefcn/oct-hist.cc' the only changeset hitting this file after the 4.4.1 release was this

Is empty in 5.0.0 and dev (6.0.0).
FWIW, on my Linux box the latest cmd history time stamp for 5.0.0 is from Nov. 7.

Comment #2 got stripped...

history_timestamp_format_string

have any content on your system in 5.0.0 or dev?  On my system in 5.0.0 it is empty, thus might not be initialized correctly.

In 4.4.1 it has a value similar to that one you reported.

Confirmed for Linux (openSUSE 15.0) with Octave 5.0.0.

 __octave_config_info__ ("hg_id")
ans = f6cf96b71081

The issues might be related to the changes from cset
https://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/f881d3e271d2

Does the variable

history_timestamp_format_string
+verbatim-

have any content in your case?  On my system it is empty, thus might not be initialized correctly.  In Octave 4.4.1 it was filled with the string similar to that one you reported.

In previous versions of Octave, lines similar to the following were added to the command history each time I started the GUI:

# Octave 4.4.1, Sat Dec 29 14:47:53 2018 GMT <unknown@ASUS-UX510UX>

These lines no longer appear in the current default branch (and probably the stable branch, too).
Have they been removed intentionally? I personally quite liked these "dividers" as an indication when I started a new Octave session.
