Yes it happens even then. 

Meanwhile I think I found the culprit. It is a specific 21.4.22 bug (I
personally switched to 21.5.X years ago and never encountered this bug).

The whole regions in minibuf.el reads like

|           ;; #### should be 2 not 3, but that causes
|           ;; "window too small to split" errors for some
|           ;; people (but not for me ...) There's a more
|           ;; fundamental bug somewhere.

This does not sound too good. [1]

I found a kludge to solve the bug I encountered. I already contacted the
last remaining maintainer(s), Aidan, and will wait for his comment.
Maybe you could keep the bug open till I receive some feedback from


(Maybe I should also file a bug report to Debian/Ubuntu maintainers, but
I don't make myself to many illusions whether they are willing to apply
the patch).

[1]  Strangely enough these comments are
deleted in the xemacs 21.5 branch, but I have trouble to find the
relevant changelog entries. Right now I am not even sure where the
source code of 21.4.22 is, because I can't find it in bitbucket.
