Not sure about the UNIX text-based interface, but maybe this is relevant ... when running Stata from Terminal on a Mac OSX machine:

You can review the past 5 commands with: 
or the past 20 commands with 
#review 20 

Also, in a terminal window Ctrl + R is the shortcut to bring up the previous command instead of PgUp and Ctrl+B can be used to move to the next command.
See Manual Section U 10.5 for more.
