No, I mean emacs 21, circa fall '99.

For instance, byte-compiling a file results in a ton of messages, about
half of which take one line and half two, the result being crazy

Now that the echo-area is only shrunken at strategic points, it tends to
grow to a certain size and stay put for a while, which is much less
