This isn't supposed to happen in properly-working scripts.  Either the
shell itself, or your rc files, should recognize it's not a human tty
and not log its history.  I'm pretty sure your app must be doing some
weird stuff to the shell to make it log its history.  Probably some
poking around in the source could disable that.
