I think this is due to the following change:

2007-12-27  Richard Stallman  <address@hidden>

        * progmodes/compile.el (compilation-start): Set initial visible
        point properly even when compilation buffer already current.

Which was meant to address this complaint:

    Previously in Emacs 22, as well as in previous releases, , repeating
    grep in the *grep* buffer would put you at the top of the buffer. This
    was true at least as late as a build from 2006-07-19.
    Now, it puts you at the end of the buffer, so you must do M-< to get
    back to the beginning. Quite annoying.
