I really don't want to get into more redefining of such stuff if I can avoid it.
But we'll see.

I never heard of `last-event-frame' either until this thread, when I started
looking at this stuff more closely, trying to find something that would help.

What do you mean by "the above" here?  The redefinition code you just suggested
(elided above) or something else?

Got it.  Good to know that difference.

Not sure what you mean.  There is no equivalent in the emacs -Q tests you asked
me to do.  There is nothing on post-command-hook etc.

I must be missing something when I try to follow that recipe.

I started Emacs with my setup.  I moved to the src directory (in Emacs 24.1,
since I don't have src for later builds - but Emacs 24.1 has the same problem).
I typed M-x gdb, appended c:/Emacs-24.1/bin/emacs.exe and hit RET.

That seemed to pop up a new emacs -Q session (splash page, none of my
customizations, minibuffer in the same frame, etc.), with this message in buffer
*Warnings*, whose window split the screen with the splash page:

"Error (initialization): User has no home directory"

(There are no messages in *Messages*.)

And in buffer *gud-emacs.exe* I see this:

(gdb) run

Should I have appended something different to `M-x gdb'?  This is what I use
when I start Emacs with my setup:

C:\Emacs-24.1\bin\runemacs.exe --debug-init

That is what I used this time too, before using `M-x gdb' in src/.

I'm not sure what you mean.  I tried this:

1. Remove the `redirect...' from `1on1-fit-minibuffer-frame'.

2. Put back the guard (eq last-event-frame (window-frame (minibuffer-window)))
at the beginning of `1on1-fit-minibuffer-frame' (so it is a no-op otherwise).

3. Defined this and added it to `after-make-frame-functions':

(defun 1on1-redirect-to-minibuffer (new-frame)
  (when (and 1on1-fit-minibuffer-frame-flag
               (select-window (minibuffer-window))
               (one-window-p nil 'selected-frame)))
      (window-frame (minibuffer-window)))))

That did not help at all.  The original symptoms returned (typing yes/no did not
go to the minibuffer etc.).
