Nope... There's NO WAY... (I spent 2 days trying to figure it out!).
One possible way is to set the size of the windows to 80x50 lines (but
sometimes it's not enough) right clicking on the ms-dos prompt link/icon
and modifying the entry in the Screen tab.
Another way is to get STERR redirection using BASH or 4DOS (if you don't
want to install cygwin!).
Or, you can always write a small class that:

public static void main(String argv[]) {

In this way you'll be able to redirect the error to output and it
(should) work...
