Yup.  There are several bug reports on this (general) issue of
asynchronous messages hiding queries.  One suggestion has been to extend
the echo area in these instances, showing the message (perhaps) below
the prompt.  Another is to have the prompt re-assert itself after a
timeout, making the message disappear.
