Well, thanks for making up for that.
I used xemacs 21.4.24 (the latest and greatest), and pkgsrc
print/auctex which I just updated to 11.92 (it installs outside the
xemacs package system).
(I had to 'chmod 0 xemacs-packages/lisp/auctex' to get the
auctex recognized. Not that it made a difference WRT...)
That is a bit odd. I did not need to do that. Hm
Hm - works just fine here... What did I miss? Have you tried 21.4.24?
That is extremely odd. I am bound to xemacs 21.4.22 because this is the
version Ubuntu 16.04 ships and which my college uses (it so happens that
I also have Ubuntu 16.04 installed, so I can reproduce her error). I
personally use 21.5.34
I checked with the minibuf.el from the default branch of xemacs-21.4
(which must correspond to 21.4.24 I presume), there is a slight
difference but the main crucial setting
(split-window nil (- (frame-height frame) 3)))
The same as in in 21.4.22.
That setting causes the problem and I changed to
(split-window nil (- (frame-height frame) 5)))
Which solves it.
Now I don't make this up myself
So I only see two explanations.
1. Some thing is wrong with auctex. May I send you offlist the
auctex package I used and you send me yours to see, whether this
is the source of error.
2. If that is not the case and I am almost sure it is not, then the
culprit must be 21.4.22, and I have to send the patch to
Ubuntu/debian (who will never answer or bother, in my experience)
So Hauke please tell me whether we could interchange our auctex packages
 well actually I almost switched entirely to GNU emacs (git master)
after Stephens depressing email, 4 years ago, and the fact that
three very important lisp packages dropped xemacs support, auctex,
gnus and especially org mode.
