While it is true that the Oreilly book was written for an older version of 
OCaml, even the 3.06 on-line documention describes the ocamlwin.exe 
interface as follows:

The ``Terminal'' windows is split in two panes. Phrases are entered and 
edited Windows interface.
An history of previously entered phrases is maintained and displayed in a 
separate window.

It's a bit of a mystery to me !!
