I wasn't thinking of 50 when I said large number :-)

FWIW, I have (setq scroll-conservatively 9999) and scrolling down
some part of my ~/.emacs file didn't cause it to jump, even though
Emacs was doing garbage collection after a few hundred lines.

What happens when you leave scroll-step at the default of 0 and set
scroll-conservatively as I suggested?

[time passes]

Okay, I did a test.  I invoked Emacs 21.3 (not the version I'm using
to post this) via "emacs -q -no-site-file", then I typed the
following into the *scratch* buffer and hit C-j at the end of the

    (setq scroll-conservatively 9999)

Then I opened ~/.emacs and scrolled down 600 lines.  I didn't observe
any jumping.

What happens when you do this?  (Maybe use another file.)
