While I never got a reply to this, I did continue trying to figure it out and ended up doing a fresh install on our system and there histories worked. After a bit of back and forth with upgrading the previous install and database the issue appears to be with subtle changes to the universe_wsgi.ini file and starting with a fresh one that came with the new distribution, and then modifying that to suit our environment resulted in an upgrade where histories worked.

I've tried updating a couple of times to the latest stable release and each time I find that I can no longer see my saved histories. Roll back my machine to an earlier snapshot and it is fine. The thing that may be different about our system is that we're using Apache authentication rather than using the built in accounts. Nothing about the apache install has changed, just do the update to the June release, start it, run the manage_db.sh upgrade and restart (database is on postgres by the way) and then saved histories is empty and creating new histories never populates the list either. I would like to upgrade since the previous release had issues with sending BAM files to UCSC which this update has fixed.
Maybe it's related to the upgraded SQLAlchemy?
