I want to second this.

I am using for '*compilation*' 'special-display-buffer-names' (frame
height 20 lines) and I also have set 'compilation-scroll-output' set
to 't' but with my very long compile command line (7628 characters)
the buffer moves _not_ to the end and so I am not able to see whether
the compilation has finished. It moves to the end only for the first
time. Also without 'special-display-buffer-names' it looks better.
