I don't know after these things Google will keep our chat history or not!!! but I think this is a bug in Gmail service.

Confusingly, Google Talk's "off the record" option has NO relation to the end-to-end encrypted OTR that we know about. I am surprised that the chat history is still visible to users, though.
To use OTR with Google Talk, you need to use a 3rd-party program like the ones mentioned on http://otr.cypherpunks.ca/
