Follow-up Comment #17:

The use of a pager is generally tied with using a CLI.  In the past, when a
CLI was the only interface available, it made sense for the pager to be on by
default.  It was awkward if you had a lot of data to watch it fly by on the
terminal with no means of slowing and reviewing it.  With a GUI, the
interactive design principles recommend against using a pager.  The data that
comes out is always available for review by using the scrollbars in the
Command Window.  I have written a note to the Octave Maintainer's about
possibly changing the default in Octave.
