This problem occurred again, but this time with a local FS, so the
problem can't be related to NFS:

/dev/hda13 on /home type ext2 (rw)

Moreover, the command I got after cmd1 was "startx", which means that
cmd2 (the command that hadn't been written to the history) was the
last command typed in the shell, like in my previous bug report.
