Fedora 18: Annoying terminal problem.

This really isnt a problem.. more an annoyance.

WhenI type a command in the terminal (bash) and the output exceeds the size of the terminal.. the output is automatically piped into less/more. How can I disable that? Ive looked through all the /etc/profile and bash environment variables... but cant seem to find one to turn this behavior off.

Any help appreciated.

That reminds me, for a good time, grab the top of the terminal window (in XFCE4) move to the top of the screen and let the mouse go up beyond the panel. The terminal window width will fill the screen width with same number of lines. That might avoid output exceeding the width of the terminal. Just grab the top of the terminal window again, and move it below the panel; the terminal will revert to its previous size and location. It's not a bug, it's a feature!

Can you give us an example? for example does it do it with 'dmesg'?
