bash history

If I recall correctly Bourne shell behavior in System V
was to save the last commands into the history file.
Or maybe it was early ksh.

With GNU bash, version 2.03.0(1)-release (i386-pc-linux-gnu),
I get HISTSIZE lines of history, then new commands are not
entered into history.  The history file is repeatedly
truncated at the same point.

This seems inconsistent with the documentation.
Am I missing a switch someplace or what?
