tried this on Linux and Windows. Works really good.

That is no problem, because the overlay moves if compilation proceeds and
the compilation buffer gets more content.

The problem only arises if a single line of output in compilation buffer was
bigger then the screen width (and I have truncates-lines set to t) and had
no LF. In all other cases there was no problem. I saw this just now,,
because our production environment is producing such long lines since not so
long time.

As said. It works very well.

Thank you.

With kind regards,

Stefan-W. Hahn                          It is easy to make things.
                                        It is hard to make things simple.
