Subject: bug#2800: 23.0.91; Emacs has no response when
mini-buffer is too narrow to display information

It still happens, i've uploaded another three pictures which show the problem more clearly

In step1.png it has no problem. Then i typed C-x } *once* to make the right window narrower, as in step2.png
Then when i tried M-x align<TAB> the problem occured, after i typed another <TAB> Emacs has no responses.
Additionally, when i have two of emacs running in this situation, the system becomes really slow, since emacs consumes nearly 100% CPU

I can't reproduce this.  Does it happen with `emacs -Q'?
