Ahsan, I have finally pushed your patch with changeset
sorry for the delay.

Thank you for the patch.

I have added the functions for the windows terminal, too. But I could not test them because I have trouble to make an mxe-build from the gui-release branch (this is also the reason for the delay). Therefore the code in these functions is commented out for the moment and the buffer size from the settings only affects the unix terminal.

I leave this bug report open and change the os to windows.

You can find the patch in the attached file.

Confirmed, I don't see a setting in the preferences for the scrollback size. Looks like it is hard-coded to 1000 plus whatever the terminal height happens to be in the Linux terminal.
