This can be a problem. See also #7679.

Nobuhiro, thank you for reporting this issue.
Your contribution to Ruby is greatly appreciated.
May Ruby be with you.
- lib/irb/ext/save-history.rb: outputs its history to owner-only-readable file and change the permission of a file that already exists [Bug #7694]. Thanks Nobuhiro IMAI for bug reports.

Thanks to fix this. But
File.stat(history_file).mode & 066
returns true value even if the history file mode is already 0600, so the if-statement is ineffective. I attached a tiny patch.
