Just edit your profile and click on the scrolling tab. Then untick the
box that says "scroll on keystrokes". Works for me, but of course your
mileage may vary.

BTW, thanks for the question. I actually learn a lot from my attempts to
answer such questions. I didn't even realize until I looked for your
answer that command line wrapping was possible.

Live long and prosper,
