That's very helpful, thank you!

Thanks for the pointer.  I acknowledge that I'm in the minority here,
but I greatly prefer less frequent scrolling, so that I have more time
to visually process the text before it moves and disrupts my ability to
process it.

Ideally, both settings of 'comint-scroll-show-maximum-output' would
behave as expected, without mode hooks.

That said, I don't have time to work on this myself, and it's certainly
of very little importance.  The mode hook workaround is good enough for
me, and I guess there are very few people with my preferences, so I'm
willing to let this go.  Feel free to close this bug as "wontfix", or to
keep it open, as you prefer.

Thanks again,
