LXC Consoles clear when switching between guests on Proxmox VE

Hey all,

I've been using Proxmox for a little while now and so far have found it quite handy, mostly for segregating software for easy upgrading, however when using LXC Containers, I've found a huge annoyance, if Im using the console of a LXC Container, should I switch between different guests and then go back to the container, its like some one has done the clear command, I can see history, but if Im working on something and I want the output to be there, I cannot leave the LXC container console.

Is there any way to preserve the state of the LXC Console when switching between guests on the proxmox GUI?

You can connect to the containers via SSH
I also am interested in solving this riddle. I use the web interface all day long every day but my #1 pain in life is that I need to be incredibly careful not to accidentally click away, or else I lose all of my work and all of my history!

How do we prevent wipes between switching, like VMs?
The container console can be opened up in a separate window by clicking the Console button in the top right
