Thiat patch doesn't make the last line visible; instead, it expands the
height of the minibuffer.  However, I played around with the idea and
the following does the job, though the window is actually much higher

         (while (progn (setq char (read-event))

                         (not (memq (downcase char)

To be honest, I do not understand why your patch failed, nor why this
one works (better).
