Yes, Peter's patch scrolls at a constant, not too fast, pace. But it
works, which makes all the difference.

Yes, that's what I have been complaining about.

It does seem so but I don't run many applications and, now, with
Peter's patch, only Mail behaves that way (and, since I never have
more than one Mail window, I don't care).

That, indeed would be nice. But I am too old even to dream of
changing away from TeXShop.
By the way, since my menu bar is on the left screen, I noticed on the
right screen that some windows, e.g. Intaglio, will not go above the
top of the screen, some will go but bounce back down as soon as I let
go of them (which I like), e.g. Mail, TeXShop, and some will stay
stuck partly above the top, e.g. Finder. Bizarre.
