minibufferless frames

I think I may have asked this question before (over 12 months ago) but
its still niggling

I have emacs set up so that my *shell* buffer opens up in a separate
frame without a minbuffer - well it looks like a normal terminal
However whenever I do a esc-p to use a previous command , a message:
History item: 1
appears in the parent's frame minibuffer. This is not so bad unless
the parent frame is iconized, in which case it is uniconized and it
usually is large enough so that I can no longer see the previous
command that I wanted to recall! I have then to click on the shell
frame border to get it to the front.

I've (just) got around it by the following advice
(defadvice comint-previous-input (after makemefront activate)
  (if rajm-shell-frame-id
      (raise-frame rajm-shell-frame-id)))
but shouldn't calling `message` only deiconise the frame and not force
it to the front? Don't have any problem with `error` making itself visible
