Configure enough scrollback.
Create continuously scrolling output:
while true ; do ls -alh ; sleep 1 ; done

Viewport is updated to the latest output.
Scroll up one or more lines.
Viewport is stable, new output is added
to the invisible end.

Everything like expected up to now.
Now press the Meta key (also called the Windows Key or Super Key),
left or right doesn't matter.

Viewport is updated to the latest output.

Expected behaviour:
Viewport should be stable when pressing the Meta key
(as with Ctrl and Alt keys).

My use case:
Monitoring output with tail -f, scroll up to stop auto scrolling.
I have many shortcuts starting with the Meta...

To clarify, hitting Meta key causes Konsole to scroll to be the bottom similar
to hitting Enter?

On my Neon system, hitting left "meta" key opens the KDE/plasma menu.  Right
one does nothing.

It's similar, but with a little difference:
- Hitting Enter immediately scrolls to the bottom
- Hitting one of the Meta keys scrolls to the bottom when new text is appended
to the end
  (e.g. by tail -f). This can also happen minutes after hitting the Meta key.

Meta is typically Alt, whereas Super is the Windows/Ubuntu key. Do you have a
nontypical mapping, or just mixed up the terminology?

Sorry, I mixed up the terminology.
The problem is with the left and right windows keys. So we're talking about the
super keys.
I've got two pretty standard Kubuntu installations with German keyboard.
I don't have access to them for the next weeks, so please be patient if more
info is required.
