Ok, I see what you mean now. eshell puts the next prompt in the middle
of the screen, so you lose more of the output off the top of the
screen than with shell, which puts the next prompt three-quarters of
the way down the screen. I'm sure this can be configured with
scroll-conservatively or scroll-aggressively or something, but I'm not
sure how exactly. I haven't had much luck getting scrolling tweaked
just how I like it.

I don't know the answer to this, but I'm curious to learn - hopefully
someone else will fill us in.
