I had the same question some time ago. And I tried all of the mentioned commanders. Krusader is by far the best one but I didn't want to have whole bunch of KDE libraries installed. Gnome-Commander cripples system theme in order to get some more speed (I guess) but it doesn't support tabs. Mucommander is Java based and lacks integration with system (and it's ...

Do it with a simple loop: for i in *.txt; do cat "$i" >> complete.txt; done >> appends to the file. Note: If for some reason you have to run the command again, you have to remove complete.txt, otherwise you'd write the file to itself, which doesn't work.
In addition to the @Lekensteyn answer, I'd like to add that this behavior is based on Do one thing and do it well philosophy - tar program knows how to put multiple files into a single stream (with .tar extension), gzip knows how to compress a single file (adding .gz extension)*.
