I used a notepad window to capture significant events from the mud, and also use it as an instantly available log. I do notice, though, that MUSHClient from time to time gets slightly sluggish if notepad windows get too big.

There's an output clear function (which just clears the main MUSHClient screen), and an append to notepad function, but I don't see any way to instantly wipe a notepad clean, or any way to set a notepad window to cap at a certain line limit, discarding the oldest messages thereafter to stay at the line cap. Are these features in and I just don't know how to invoke them? If not, is there any chance they could be added in a future version?

Would close and reopen suit your needs? Something like http://gammon.com.au/forum/?id=12985&page=999 perhaps?

The notepad window is just a Windows edit control and it does have limitations.

One approach is to send the output to a "dummy world" which then gives you a large output buffer (you choose the size) and it automatically discards the oldest output if you exceed that.
