I just checked and the \s code actually calls the readline library:

	        if (write_history(fname) == 0)

with fname set to /dev/tty if file name is supplied.  The only fix we
could do would be to put a temp file in for fname, then output that
through a pager.  However, it doesn't seem worth the trouble.

I added a comment in the C code if we ever come back to it.
