Old database treated as a new one

Every time I open a certain database that I've had for several years, I get the "Welcome" thing in Rel and no history in command line mode. I found that the system's history relvar didn't exist, so I created it, using text from another database's backup file, but that didn't help.

How can I stop this Welcome thing from appearing every time?

If you click the "Install Rev" button on the Welcome screen, it will create various additional relvars to support Rel functionality including the visual query language (aka Rev), command history, etc., plus it will provide a checkbox on the Welcome screen to turn off the Welcome screen.
