We?  Why?  In term.c you've bound `resize-mini-windows' to nil.

Too difficult :-(

Down to 0.01, no differences.  But couldn't, in the original scenario,
Emacs redisplay (which BTW seems to redraw the modeline too) garble the
display (and termscript doesn't see that)?  Or is that a silly question?

I do so for quite some time as my caps should have shown.  BTW
`window-height' and `window-screen-lines' give the same values (22 and
21.0) as for the w/o terminal menubar case.
