Could we use message-truncate-lines and just one message call instead?

Maybe.  But currently what is truncated is not the whole command line,
but each of the command switches.  I don't know how important this is.

Apparently the idea is that "in background... done" is shown in the echo area regardless of the command string length.

The 20 characters limit seems arbitrary, we just need to avoid resizing the
echo area. And if the "in background... done" part being truncated is
a worry, we can rephrase them to go at the beginning of the sentence.

Indeed, truncating "in background... done" is not nice, and I have
no idea how to rephrase it.

How about:

Running in background: %s


Finished in background: %s

Anyway, this is the current patch to try:

Does it work like you wanted? According to Eli, we should replace message-truncate-lines here with resize-mini-windows.
