Not a bug, but a deliberate behavior.  Emacs behaved like that by
default since v21.1.  What you want you can have if you customize
resize-mini-windows to have the value t; see the doc string for more
details.

The reason for the default value is to avoid the annoying up and down
jumps of the mode line when the echo area displays messages of
different length.
