This happens because read-from-minibuffer enters recursive-edit, and
we don't preserve this-command-keys across recursive-edit invocations.

This has been Emacs behavior since forever.

The patch below seems to fix this, but I have no idea what it could
break, given how old this behavior is.  So if we are to accept this,
I'd like to have a few people step forward and run with the change for
a month or so, to see there are no adverse effects.  We've been burnt
several times lately by changes in keyboard-input stuff that broke
subtle but very useful features.
