It works perfectly. They have even corrected the scroll. Perfect.
Okay I think I understand now and props to @vlad for figuring out what you're saying.
Console logs are a history. It tells you what has happened. It's not a representation on the current state of your app, it's just a continuous dump of prints and error/warning messages created over time.
No other Unix/Linux based console log resets on every run, the continuously grow with new messages appended to the bottom of the log.
Now all that said, there is some utility for Corona users to have the behavior you're asking for. I don't think previous loads matter that much. What you're asking for is, however, a new feature. The Corona console log has always behaved like normal Unix/Linux syslog type features.
We can discuss it. It's however probably not going to be a high priority feature for us to add. In fact, with Corona being open source, this would be a great project for a community developer to take on. Maybe add it as a selectable preference and let users pick if they want a continuous log or a fresh one on restart.
I keep this Rob:
defaults write com.coronalabs.Corona_Simulator clearConsoleOnRelaunch -bool YES
