When using the "%b" substitution in frame-title-format (the default
value includes this when there are multiple frames), the user would
expect the name of the buffer that they are editing to be shown.  This

title changes to the buffer name of the minibuffer - "*Minibuf-0*" or
similar.  This may be what is happening internally, but it is an
implementation detail which does not need to be revealed.  The user
might wonder why the window title is changing just because they are
being prompted for some information.

Applying the following patch corrects this.  If the selected window is a 
minibuffer window, it evaluates the format string in the buffer of the 
minibuffer-selected-window instead of the buffer of the minibuffer.  With this 
patch, the frame title stays the same as before when being prompted in the
