Start Emacs with "emacs -Q" and type the following in the "*scratch*"
buffer:

  (read-char "char: ")

With the point after the right paren type now "C-x C-e"
(`eval-last-sexp').  If you press this key-sequence slowly, waiting one
second (the value of `echo-keystrokes') between "C-x" and "C-e" the
prompt string ("char: ") will be obscured by the echo area showing the
keystrokes "C-x C-e-" (note the trailing dash!).
