this appends the current session's history list to the history file.
Since the OP wants to share the history across sessions I assume this
includes sessions that are already running?

In that case he would also need to do a "history -n".

I don't know if the PROMPT_COMMAND supports more than one command - and
it's a bit late to test. :-) 

But he could probably define a bash function something like:

shrhist ()
        history -a $HISTFILE
        history -n $HISTFILE

.. thus keeping his history lists & history file in sync' ..?
