Hello!

Here is a simple case, which also shows more than just an annoyance.

Launch just compiled GNU Emacs with -Q, execute in *scratch* buffer

	(add-hook 'dired-mode-hook 'auto-revert-mode)=20

and open the recent buffer in dired. Just for fun type

	M-x compile RET

and add some (meaningless) text to the make command or overwrite it with =
./configure <whatever>. Now contemplate a bit, do as if trying to invoke =
configure in the other shell, from which GNU Emacs 24.0.95 was launched, =
to get its options. But type instead

	touch something

Still wait a moment, look at the text in the mini-buffer =96 oh, it's =
gone! It might be substituted with something like

	Reverting buffer `emacs-24.0.94'.

And when you now go to the Help menu to check "Send Bug Report..." no =
"*unsent Mail ..." buffer will open but the text

	apply: Command attempted to use minibuffer while in minibuffer

will appear in mini-buffer/echo-area.


This can happen quite often, also when contemplating over a regexp, or =
find-grep, or whatever. It might be often easy to get back to the =
original state, by some cursor backward or forward movement, but it is =
annoying. IMO it's cleaner when GNU Emacs would wait a while before =
spitting out some message until I have finished editing in mini-buffer.

Hmm... I can reproduce the problem in the following way:

   emacs -Q
   M-: (run-with-timer 5 nil (lambda () (message "hello"))) RET
   M-x

after 5 seconds the M-x prompt is replaced by "hello" and will only
return when you type something on the keyboard.


        Stefan
