Default History not saved in tcsh

I use tcsh as my login shell and in X and have these lines in .cshrc
set history=200
set savehist=200
set histdup=erase
My history file, however, never changes. While I am working, the history list grows, but the next day when I boot up only the first 20 items are there. The next day is the same thing, with the same twenty items.

Is there some problem with having the shell in X and the login shell both being tcsh? I wouldn't have thought so, but am puzzled as to why the history file doesn't change.
