Skip, I can confirm this defect in
XEmacs 21.5 (beta28) "fuki" (+CVS-20071014) [Lucid] (i586-pc-win32, Mule) of Mon Oct 15 2007 on TANG
using cmd as a shell
As a command I use
for %i in (1 2 3) do echo %i
The bottom window successively shrinks all the way down to a single
line (or slightly less, by the looks of it) and stops shrinking further.
When i manually drag the modeline above it the game starts over, but
this time to window resizing stop slighlty taller than a single line.
Perhaps Michael Sperber knows more about this?
