bug#5633: 23.1.92; *compilation* hangs and fails to scroll

From: Marshall, Simon
Subject: bug#5633: 23.1.92; *compilation* hangs and fails to scroll
Date: Tue, 23 Feb 2010 15:28:04 -0000

This is a re-emergence of bug 2223 filed against 23.0.91 and (ISTR) subsequently fixed.

You will need a Makefile that is going to output a long line.  This works for me:

        @echo the 2+K char very long line copied from my real makefile

Now emacs -Q and eval in *scratch*

(setq compilation-scroll-output t)
(setq special-display-frame-alist nil)
(setq compile-frame-alist
      (append '((width . 150) (height . 15))
              '((left . 25) (top . 75))
              '((menu-bar-lines . 1))
(setq special-display-buffer-names
      (list (cons "*compilation*" compile-frame-alist)))

Now do Tools > Compile... RET and I see Emacs create the *compilation* window frame and insert chunks of the echo output before eventually not scrolling the *compilation* window.  It doesn't stop scrolling at the same time with each recompile.
