That can (and should) be fixed without having to reduce the number of candidates inserted in the (mini)buffer.

It will be great if you give me an idea about how to do that.

You need to figure out why the redisplay decides to hide the prompt rather than some other part of the (mini)buffer.

Usually, the deciding factor is the position of `point` (the redisplay tries hard to always keep `point` visible).

In this case it is not, apparently at least. As you can see with the (setq max-mini-window-height 1) M-x a example, the typical effect is to put the point at the first position of the window (top left), thereby hiding what precedes (the prompt and the characters typed so far).
