[R] R loosing history

Im running R 1.8.1 on Win2000 and frequently using the function history() 
to keep track of what I did in my R session.
In a recent session I typed history(max=Inf) and to my surprise there were 
only 15 lines of code where there should have been approx. 300 lines and I 
lost a lot of valuable work.
Do you have any idea what caused this behaviour? help(history) didn't make 
me any smarter. Am I misunderstanding the concept of history()? I was 
expecting it to keep track of every command I type during my session.

Any help is appreciated,
