The second character up to the first "|" (i.e., 3cd13118) is the
timestamp; it's the number of seconds since 1970-01-01 00:00:00 UTC in
hexadecimal.  You can use a text editor of your choice to change it to a
more reasonable value.  Since entries in the history file are in
chronological order, an easy way to find a more reasonable value is to
pick one that's between the values in the previous and next lines.
