Thiat patch doesn't make the last line visible; instead, it expands the
height of the minibuffer.

Indeed.  I concentrated to make this work with split windows.

However, I played around with the idea and
the following does the job, though the window is actually much higher
than it needs to be.

We could use `shrink-window-if-larger-than-buffer'.

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

Your patch fails with split windows, maybe you could play around a bit more.

Anyway users should be able to scroll the window with the text because the
text might be larger than the frame.
