Keep terminated launch consoles in Eclipse

This one bugs me every time I upgrade to a new release of Eclipse. I often like to look back at the consoles from main methods/junits/tomcat launches I've terminated. I guess I expect to find a preference right in the context menu preferences for the Console view, or for it to match "terminated" in the prefs search - no luck.

So that I never have to search for this again, this preference can be found under
Run/Debug => Launching => "Remove terminated launches when a new launch is created"

As of Eclipse 3.5 it's in Window->Preferences->Run/Debug->Launching->Remove terminates...

Thanks, both of you! Why is that the default?? Crazy
