why does rails console scroll to the right?

When the ouput of a command on the internal "Rails Console" is wider than the screen, the console scrolls horizontally to show the right side of the line.

This is a pain, as usually the left side is the most significant.

Is there a way to prevent this?

Also: it would be great to have Vi keyboard bindings on the input area. Is that possible?

Thanks.

+1 - scrolling to the right is a big time waster - wish it would be fixed.

Hi Chez,

It is not possible now, however Rails and IRB consoles seem to be reworked in further versions and maybe this will be possible.
