I don't know if Andrew is a windows user, but if so he might not be
aware that even with the (otherwise braindead) command window the
number of lines buffered is a configurable property (on WinXP at least).
I have it set to 1000 lines.
The other thing I've found that makes the use of command line tools
a lot less painful than it would otherwise be in windows is the
"Open Command Window Here" Power Toy..
It's still nowhere near as good as the old XTree though :-(
