Is this in Rgui? Then it actually keeps to the width of the console on
startup. From etc/Rconsole
# should options(width=) be set to the console width?
setwidthonresize = yes
So please check that you have set that to your wishes (I guess you have
not). Unless you resize the console, setting options(width=65) in the
console itself will work.
None of this applies to Rterm.
NB: this *is* in the rw-FAQ, Q4.2. In case it is not clear to you,
opening the console is a resizing of it, from width and height 0.
NBB: the behaviour is unchanged since rw0641!
