It indeed selects the window and sets the current buffer.  But C-x k
should never offer *Minibuf-0* for killing.  Does it really prompt with
*Minibuf-0*?  If so, then the following excerpt from Fcall_interactively

        case 'b':               /* Name of existing buffer */
          args[i] = Fcurrent_buffer ();
          if (EQ (selected_window, minibuf_window))
            args[i] = Fother_buffer (args[i], Qnil, Qnil);
          args[i] = Fread_buffer (callint_message, args[i], Qt);

is broken.  IIUC it means that the current buffer is the buffer of the
minibuffer window (how did that happen?) but the minibuffer window is
not selected.  What is missing from the form below to reproduce it?

  (add-hook 'after-make-frame-functions
            #'(lambda (frame)
                 frame (window-frame (minibuffer-window)))))
  (setq pop-up-frame-function (lambda () (make-frame '((minibuffer . nil)))))
  (setq pop-up-frames t)
  (display-buffer "*Messages*")
  (yes-or-no-p "???"))
