Yeah, that works... thanks!

This variable is not helpful for me.

The reason I came upon this issue is that during heavy lifting, i.e.
checking out new packages and playing with options and combos, I find
myself very often in the situation to press C-c ` after literally every
LaTeX-run. This is annoying me. I want to have an output of compilation
the moment I issue the compile command.

One further question though. What is the best approach to scroll the
output window (compilation window for ecb) to a certain line number.
Specifically, when in the source buffer window I want to run LaTeX and
scroll the compilation window (i.e. other-window in this case) to
end-of-buffer 'minus' 20 lines (meaning upwards from end-of-buffer).

Any suggestions? Any better ways? Thanks in advance
