Works for me on Cygwin and Linux (Slackware).

Hm... I get only a single ~/.history file.

4.2.3s' configure is broken (on Cygwin) right now, so unless you know
what you're doing, I'd wait on it.

This works for me without any problems, using 4.2.0 in Cygwin. I've
opened three shells and can see/use the commands entered from any of the
three shells by any of the three shells. I suspect it's something
environmental. More detail about your system is in order. The output
from 'cygcheck -s' might be enlightening.
BTW, I just pushed 4.2.1-1 out. You can give it a try, but I kinda doubt
that'll solve your problems. On the other hand, it does have the new
/etc/zprofile in it.
BTW, it appears cygwin-announce isn't working...at least I haven't seen
any "[ANNOUNCE]" notices lately.
I'll be pushing out 4.2.3 once I get patches for configure worked out.
Still, I think your problem is something else. Please submit 'cygcheck -s'
