    I think they should ignore it.  Maybe other-frame could pick it up...

That won't work--other-frame finds only frames, and this would
not be a separate frame.

    > A speed bar window should have no minibuffer, right?

    No.  I think it *should*.  Specifically because the speedbar needs to log 
    messages and you wouldn't want this filling up your main minibuffer.

A minibuffer under the speedbar window would be too small to see much
in.  Anyway, adding another minibuffer here would be a big increase in
complexity, which I think we MUST avoid.

I think all speedbars should share a single buffer for such logging.
If you want to look at that buffer all the time, you can display it as
you would any other buffer.
