On the Misc tab there is an option called Buffered Output.  I usually
have this unchecked so that output will go immediately to the console.
 You should put the flush.console() after the print functions that you
want to appear on the console.  If you are marking progress with the
print statement, put the flush.console after the print.  Are you
printing this out for each time through the loop for 10M rows?  You
might also want to check out the 'winProgressBar' function.
