I'd like to propose that EnableOpacSearchHistory be changed to a "choice" type system preference with these options:
1. Off (no OPAC search history)
2. LoggedIn (track history only for logged in users)
3. All (track history for all users)
This would give libraries a little more flexibility in catering to their patrons' privacy concerns.

Actual time not defined. Setting to 0.0
Setting qa contact to the default for this product.
This bug either had no qa contact or an invalid one.
I like this idea!
What is the default behaviour today? Looking at the search_history table of one of my sites it looks like logging is only done for logged in users?
I think if you are not logged in search history is kept too, once you log in it will be added to your existing search history. You can see this behaviour by doing a search without being logged in - the search history link should show after your first search.
We have just had a library 'complaining' about the fact that the anon history is added to the patron account on log in. This is especially a problem if the library offers computers for searching the OPAC in the library that get frequented by a lot of different users.
I think this configuration option Matts proposed would be really helpful there.
