I've also been annoyed by Paul Peng's complaint, and thanks to Rich
for his suggestions.  However, to get them to work, I found I had to 
put the following in my .emacs file:

(setq-default comint-output-filter-functions
(setq-default comint-scroll-to-bottom-on-output 'this)
(setq-default comint-scroll-show-maximum-output t)

Note the extra parens around comint-postoutput-scroll-to-bottom
They are crucial.
