That's because you're still in the recursive edit, it's like evaluating
'(error "hi")' before hitting 'q' in the *Backtrace* buffer.  You can
use C-M-c (exit-recursive-edit) to get back to normal.  I think it would
make sense to do that automatically if you kill the *Backtrace* buffer.
Yes, it would be useful.  I don't know how, though.
Sometimes i kill *Bactrace* from *Ibuffer*/*Buffer List* with the recursive edit still ongoing. It's a classical mistake.
