Clearly C-g _did_ quit the current minibuffer, in that scenario.
If you are in the Nth minibuffer then hitting C-g N times quits
N minibuffers - you are no longer in any minibuffer.  (To quit
all minibuffers you can use C-].)

I don't think that's what the problem reported refers to.
That's the normal behavior, and it always has been.
