Thank you.  I confirmed that it is fixed, but not
completely.  For instance, if my Chinese font is taller than
the normal line height and I'm using Emacs 20 style
mode-line, the guidance buffer is still only partially
visible because the window is not enlarged by

I think we anyway need a C function something like
window-buffer-fully-visible-p.  Gerd, how is it difficult to
implement it?   If it's too difficult for 21.1, we must use
Miles solution for the moment.

But, for instance, I found that this C function is enough
for Quail guidance because, in that case, we need just one
line fully visible window.  Is it doing the right thing?

DEFUN ("window-cursor-line-fully-visible-p",
       Swindow_cursor_line_fully_visible_p, 0, 1, 0,
  "Non-nil if the cursor line of WINDOW is fully visible.")
       Lisp_Object window;
  struct window *w = decode_window (window);
  struct glyph_matrix *matrix;
  struct glyph_row *row;

  redisplay ();

  if (w->cursor.vpos < 0)
    return Qnil;

  matrix = w->desired_matrix;
  row = MATRIX_ROW (matrix, w->cursor.vpos);
  return (MATRIX_ROW_PARTIALLY_VISIBLE_P (row) ? Qnil : Qt);

Of course, it's not enough for ispell because it may require
more than one line.  For that, we surely need
