History file load hangs if file has complete garbage in it...

Sorry -I didn't keep the file laying around, but somehow my history.txt file that is configured to load (via tcc options) at startup had a lot of garbage in it. It was actually a history file with the history data, but I clearly 'fat finger' pasted binary data during the session and it got saved.

Anyways... It hangs TCC starting up. Wiped the file - loads fine.

Sorry I don't have a rock solid repro of what the bad data was.
