Bug Description

Currently it's only possible to save output by selecting all output and copying it into an editor. It there's a lot of output (> 1M lines) the selection process can take up to several minutes in which `gnome-terminal` either crashes are enqueues mouse clicks to be processed after the selection finished which means that the click immediately undoes the selection. In order to overcome the latter it'd be nice to be able to save to a file directly.
