Bug#1549: bash should not have world-readable history

Package: bash
Version: 1.14.4-2

bash has a very annoying habit of creating a world-readable
.bash_history file, if you let it.

I have solved this problem by putting creating a mode 600 empty file
/etc/skel/.bash_history, so that the file already has the right
permissions when bash starts to use it.

There are other obvious solutions to the problem - I don't know which
is best, but something should be done.
