This is by design, although it is rather unclear if you're not used to it.
When you view tab completions or object? info longer than the window, you
get a pager temporarily replacing the console. Hitting q or Esc takes you
back to the console.
This actually happens in the terminal as well: if you do "import os", then
"os?" in a smallish terminal, it goes into a pager. But it doesn't happen
for tab completion.
