Found a fix.

You need to disable file prompt:

pxy-sw-18#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
pxy-sw-18(config)#no file prompt
pxy-sw-18#write mem
Building configuration...

After that, when I invoke "more system:running-config" I am no longer
prompted for the filename:

pxy-sw-18#more system:running-config
Building configuration...
