Is that a question or an answer? ;-)

If it is a question, I don't have the answer.  I can only report the symptom:
the first char is seemingly lost (does not show up in the minibuffer, at least,
and I have not seen it anywhere else).

As I said, this is not a big deal.  I mention it FYI.

Yes, if I try that with emacs -Q then it does what you say (with Emacs 24.1 and

And uncommenting those two lines also behaves as I think you intend.  In both
cases, the question is posed, and the response is accepted, in the minibuffer of
frame *shell* (i.e., not the minibuffer of frame *Process List* in the case
where it has one).

But if *Process List* has no minibuffer (uncommented test case), and it is
selected (e.g., later, manually, after replying "no" once) when you hit `C-x
C-c' (i.e., the second `C-x C-c'), then frame *shell* is raised and receives the
input, even though there is nothing on that frame that the user needs to see
(apart from the question/answer).

It is better, IMO, for the question/response to be in frame *Process List*, as
we discussed earlier.  (This is all for the case where there is no standalone
minibuffer frame.)

The reason I provided the description I did was that I thought we were talking
about my setup with a standalone minibuffer frame.  See my previous description
(quoted above) for what happens in that context.  For that context, your
suggestion of using `after-make-frame-functions', as I understood it, did not
