You probably didn't get a reply because there is no general solution.
The problem is that the height of a minipage depends on what's inside.

What you can try is to insert a picture environment at the very
beginning of the minipage.  Admittedly, nothing tested.

If you write \begin{picture}(0,0) then the size of the picture is zero
but you can still use \put in order to place material relative to the
top left corner of the minipage.  In order to see how you can scale
and rotate the watermark, run

texdoc grfguide
