Clearing Konsole

Very simple question, but it's driving me nuts.

I am using Konsole as my terminal window under KDE 2.2. I have it set up with a scrollbar and the program I am running regularly scrolls over the visible lines. I want to clear the screen (so I type "clear"), but only the portion that is visible clears and the terminal is still scrollable.

Is there a way of configuring it to clear ALL output in the terminal and not just the visible portion?

When you open Konsole, go to the 'Setting's menu at the top and click on 'History'. You can then disable completely the scroll buffer feature or set it to however many lines you actually want in the history. That's the best I could find for yuh....
