Editors set often \scrollmode or --scrollmode as default
(texniccenter certainly, emacs as far as I know too). At my opinion
this is pity. It makes compilation easier when the errors are
temporary (e.g. due to outdated aux-files) but it leads also quite a
lot people to ignore errors as long as a pdf is generated.
