In the minibuffer I see the words "glish/European]" (the font-size is
bigger than in other parts and the font-weight is bold. The start of
the string "[English" lies outside the emacs windows and is not
visible). When I click into the minibuffer a small window pops up
showing the 8 entries.

The annoyance is that I don't see any minibuffer 'messages' when I'm
e.g. looking for a file (hitting C-x f, entering the beginning of a
file name and then hitting TAB, or hitting M-x and starting to enter a
command), The regular minibuffer messages appear above the menu and I
have first to resize first the minibuffer before I see what I typed
(the minibuffer is only 1 line height and does not automatically
expand).
To illustrate the problem better I took some screenshots: They can be
seen here http://www.sonoqua.ch/emacs/ .

'-Q' doesn't remove the menu.
