(1) Currently, the console automatically reveals output as it is appended to the console. As a "sort of" workaround, you can use a preference to set a fixed character width on the console. See the user preference "Debug -> Console", "Fixed width console".
(2) Yes - the ant view creates its own launch config to run scripts (I'm happy someone else has found this misleading). Currently there is no way to run a script in the background from the Ant view. There is a bug related to this issue: See

Subject: [platform-ant-dev] A few questions
1) Is there anyway to stop the Console from scrolling horizontally for
long lines? I still want the capability to scroll if I need to, but would
rather the console stay left aligned till I told it to move.
2) Is there any way to cause ant scripts run from the ant view to be run
in the background? I tried creating a launch config for the script I was
running, but the ant view seems to create its own, and its always running
in the foreground.
