You're right, the ascent is one point higher.  I see, Emacs then wants
to increase the height of the echo area, but its height must always be a
multiple of the height of the default font.

Hm.  Unfortunately, Stefans idea didn't work: the echo area would be
resized after the `sit-for' period.

Some time ago, Savannah's WebCVS offered to download a tarball of the
