bug#5722: 23.1; C-a unexpected behavior in minibuffer

When finding a file (C-x C-f), I typically use C-a C-k to move to the beginning of the suggested search directory and kill it, so that I may quickly and easily type in the correct information. However, sometimes (usually not the first time I find a file in any given Emacs session), C-a moves to the very beginning of the minibuffer (before the prompt), whereupon C-k produces an error message. I then have to manually C-f or M-f to get where I want. I'm pretty sure this is not the correct behavior, at least according to: http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/emacs/Minibuffer-Edit.html. I am running Emacs 23.1 on a Windows XP machine, but I have seen this same problem on Ubuntu 9.10. Thanks.
