I don't know what your C-x k does so I can't comment on it.  The fact
that `call-interactively' calls `other-buffer' when the selected window
is the minibuffer window indicates that such a thing may happen and it
will happen, for example, when I'm in the minibuffer and do M-:.

Just calling `redirect-*' does not select the frame and its buffer.  But
`yes-or-no-p' does since otherwise you won't be able to type into the
minibuffer - here's the relevant piece in read_minibuf:

  /* Display this minibuffer in the proper window.  */
  Fset_window_buffer (minibuf_window, Fcurrent_buffer (), Qnil);
  Fselect_window (minibuf_window, Qnil);
  XWINDOW (minibuf_window)->hscroll = 0;

See above.
