Can this warning be suppressed and have the history overwritten without
a warning? If so then it's a simple fix (shells do the same thing) and
makes it possible to enable this feature by default. 

For most users this will do, because the majority of users don't run
multiple instances of Emacs anyway, and a more sophisticated solution
can be devised later.
