#1772 closed bug (fixed)

Terminal always scrolls to the last output

When having a long-running process such as a configure script or a compilation it is sometimes necessary to review previous output while still running (e.g. to evaluate whether to kill it).

On Linux, the GNOME Terminal behaves like this: When you haven't scrolled it assures that the last line is visible (at the bottom, once the screen is full). When you have scrolled up it doesn't jump to any new lines written until you scroll down to the last line again.

While the BeOS Terminal doesn't have this feature, it would be handy to have it on Haiku. Maybe optional?

It's especially annoying since it starts to jump while you're scrolling around (using the scrollbar), unlike BeOS which maintains the scrolling position in this case. I dunno if that's a bug in the Terminal or the scrollview implementation, though (probably Terminal, I'd guess, though).

I guess this qualifies as a bug then.
