I'm not using this distribution of octave under octave, so I do not know
about the .Xdefaults file in your setup, but you can set the number of 
lines in the scrollbuffer by specifying "-sl N" as arguments in the call
to the rxvt.exe terminal. Replace N with the number of lines in the 
buffer you would like to be saved.
Have a look at the shortcuts created by the installer, I suppose that
you call rxvt.exe with a number of arguments, and there change or add the
above metioned option
