[R] R process must die - can I save history?

I connected from my desktop Linux box to a Linux server using ssh in an
xterm, but that xterm was running in Xvnc. I'm running R on the server in
that xterm (over ssh). Something went wrong with Xvnc that has caused it
to hang, probably this bug:
So I can't get back to that ssh session or to R. I had done a bunch of
work in R but the command history hasn't been written out. If I kill R, I
assume the command history is gone. I wish I could somehow cause R to
dump the command history. Is there any way to tell the running R process
to write the history somewhere?
Thanks in advance.
