OK, I managed to reproduce it with these steps:

Yes, start Aquamacs without customization (Help -> Diagnose) menu.
Type this:

M-x R-mode RET
C-x C-o
Command-{   (or select the *scratch* tab with the mouse)
C-c C-j
C-c C-j
C-c C-j
C-c C-j

That's roughly the level of detail needed to reproduce such problems...

Now, I'm reproducing the same without most of the Aquamacs  
configuration, i.e. with what is close to GNU Emacs 22.
This suggests that it's ESS that causes this (non-)behavior.

In Google, I type "ESS eval scroll bottom".  The first result is a  
page on xemacs.org, showing me the answer to the question: comint- 

I set that variable to 'others, which can be done easily through the  
customization interface (Options -> Customize Aquamacs -> Specific  
Option).  Works for me.
