It is hardly surprising that there should be such a
limit.  Since you now know emacs' low limit on window
height and how the split-window function behaves, I
should think that you could avoid the error by
checking your situation using function window-height.

PS - Interestingly, by adjusting the size of my frame,
I can persuade emacs to display a window in a single
line.  It gives up the echo/minibuffer line first,
then the mode line - but it still works!
