@ThomasDickey Ah my mistake, I was setting the export PROMPT_COMMAND twice in my `.bashrc, it's a duplicate. I went for solution three: unix.stackexchange.com/a/18443/12471

comment How to remove duplicate entries from bash history?
@ThomasDickey It could be it, as I also have shared history between sessions set, yet the provided solution number three does not seem to work for me. Have to delve in deeper.

comment How to revert list of email by date using mutt?
Nope. It opens up fine with all the mail, yet still without any ordering. Just the oldest mail is on top and I have to scroll all the way down.

I have created the ~/.muttrc to contain source ~/.mutt/muttrc set sort_aux=last-date-received set sort=threads set sort_re yet still has no effect. Maybe IMAP issue?

comment Can tar discover the archive format when piping it in via wget?
@FaheemMitha New tar does not need uncompress flag. See askubuntu.com/a/107976/32792 for reference. And as I pointed out in my question: tar with tar xf myarchive.tar.gz. Or tar xf someotherarchive.tar.xz works. Piping them it in from wget is what causes trouble.
