You can access a history with C-p and C-n. Why these are not bound to
up and down arrow by default, I really never understood.

You're debugging bash code? I normally use mode-compile.el for
this. Basically, it runs bash with lots of debug output. 

I wonder whether GUD works on bash, that would be nice.

It requires that you have bash. M-x shell also works with DOS, or many
other shells.
