That's a feature of readline, which is a terminal library. We emulate some
readline features in the qt console, but not that one (yet).

As a compromise, if you type the first few letters of the command you're
looking for, then hit the up arrow, it should skip to the previous command
starting with those letters. This works in both the terminal and the Qt

Hope that helps,
