This relies on the 'traditional' XEP-0045 history feature which was only
meant to give the user some recent discussion context when joining a
room.  ejabberd stores this history in memory, so it's gone on server
restart.  The size of the history is configurable, but always limited.
That's the reason I recommended against using this feature, and to rely
on MAM instead.
