Tricky one. I would have thought that
(setq scroll-up-aggressively 0.0)
should do the trick, but it doesn't.
Inspection of the `shell-command' code shows me that it's a buffer in
shell-mode, which uses comint. So:
(setq comint-scroll-show-maximum-output t)
This is documented as "Non-nil means scroll so that the window is full
of text and point is on the last line. "
Now, unfortunately this doesn't work for me either, so right now I'm
at a loss.
If no-one else has an idea here, we should ask over on help-gnu-
emacs. It's not specific to Aquamacs it seems.
Feels like a bug or a really badly documented feature.
