Well, it looks as though the *Completions* buffer only wants to be a
little thorough when hiding itself.

I don't really know the origin of the behavior, but I think it's
natural if there had been opened a special frame just for the
*Completions* buffer, so I suppose that's why it has been put there.

I propose the following patch, which does a little more checking if
it's likely that emacs has been opening a special frame for the
*Completions*-buffer. With some effort you could probably still get
emacs to iconify an unexpecting frame, but I don't think many people
would, if not for playing hide and seek that is... ;)

Regards
Troels
