reading filenames in the echo area

I have FSECHOLIN$ set to 2. On Twenex, or at least on OZ, whenever I have
to enter a filename in the echo area (e.g. ^X^W), the top line of the
screen is cleared, apparently during echo of the terminating CR. This is
very annoying - I have to position the cursor to the top line and do M-0
C-L then find my way back to where I was, a non-trivial operation.
If this can't be fixed, could Teco or Emacs please arrange to force
refreshing of the top line in this situation? (i.e. after reading a filename
when fsecholin$ is less than 3).
