The last time I reported this bug, it was a bug in Maple 10, and I reported it in person to one of the GUI workers. If I wanted to report this bug privately again, I would use firstname.lastname@example.org; however, this forum seems just as effective a means of conveyance.
Anyway, there seems to be a bug, when using Maple's Classic interface, in the mechanism that redraws the screen. This is how the bug can be consistently replicated:
On a new worksheet, type in and execute a command which will at least fill the entire screen with output. For example: 10000!; fills my screen and does not trigger elision.
Next, go back up to the top and exectue that command again. The scroll bar will indicate that something in the middle of the output is the top of the screen; the scroll bar will correct itself if the cursor is moved to the top of the worksheet (via use of the up-arrow or ctrl+home).
It should be noted that this was done with Maple 11 on a machine running WinXP.
