Actually it's 10mb for every time I run the afformentioned commands,
so it gets big fast.

An example is when I print the contents of a binary file using
a C++ program, and that file is big, eshell buffer gets ~50000 lines
at that point stuff moves slower for a while.

Compared to urxvt, when I print the file there, when the command finish
its just like a simple ls.

Emacs 25.1.1
