Hello Michael
I use 9.1 on OS X 10.4.2 as well, and have not been able to reproduce the mentioned result window behaviour (with set more on and set more off, too).
Can you give an example where your problem occurs, preferably using a sample stata dataset such as the auto data? I tried -describe-, - list-, and -tab1 _all-, which certainly produce lots of output, but everything was fine.

Greetings, Chris

I am running Stata/SE 9.1 (all up-to-date) on Mac OS X (10.4.2). I've noticed that if "Enable fast scrolling" is checked in the Results Window Preferences, then one of more lines of text initially will be "invisible" in the Results window: they simply are not displayed. Activating the Results window by selecting the "invisible" text with the mouse, or by using the mouse to drag the scroll bar past the "invisible" line of text will reveal the "missing" line(s) of text. (Note: one needs to use a command that produces enough output to see this anomaly; several -xt- r-class commands exhibit this problem for me, for example.) The problem seems to be invariant to the background color scheme used for the Results window, and does re-occur after re-launching Stata. The problem goes away if "Enable fast scrolling" is unchecked. I do not recall seeing this behavior with 9.0. Is this a known issue? Has anyone else seen this display oddity?
