Hi Jordan,

As John said, this is the intentional behaviour when e.g. you quit
less before reading all of the bzr output.  We could just as easily
say nothing when we're terminated, but this is consistent with at
least some other unix programs.  Perhaps it's better to just go away,
at least in cases where it seems reasonable that the user wouldn't
read all the output.

Well, please keep looking.  Our storage is very inefficient at the
moment, but we are fixing it.
