Guess I'm still not clear on the difference.  I thought that they were the same.

What I see is that the minibuffer receives no input - that's the problem.  The
input you type goes to the other frame.

How to know which frame has the input focus if it is not the frame that receives
the input you type?

It is t.  I think that is probably typical for someone who uses a standalone
minibuffer frame, but I don't know.
