When I eval the above sexps on GNU Emacs 24.0.50.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu,
GTK+ Version 2.18.6) of 2010-08-22 on escher, I first briefly see the
message "Prompt: (y or n)", then "idle message", then
"active-minibuffer-window = " with the cursor after "= "; as soon as I
type any other key, I get "Prompt: (y or n)" again.

Are you trying this on MS-Windows?  If so, it seems to be a problem
there.
