bug#30529: 26.0.91; minibuffer errors change standard-output

From: Francis Wright
Subject: bug#30529: 26.0.91; minibuffer errors change standard-output

A user-error in the minibuffer can change the value of standard-output
(to t) within the environment that invoked the minibuffer, whereas I
think the minibuffer should rebind standard-output locally and not
change its global value. Here is a simple way to illustrate this
problem. Evaluate the following:

  "Run Standard LISP with input via the minibuffer and output via a buffer."
  (switch-to-buffer (get-buffer-create "*Standard LISP*"))
  (let (value
                (standard-output (current-buffer)))
        (while t
          (princ "Eval: ")
          (setq value (read))
          ;; (read) errors change standard-output to *Messages* buffer,
          ;; so...
          ;; (setq standard-output (current-buffer))
          (prin1 value) (terpri)
          (setq value (eval value))
          (princ "====> ") (princ value) (terpri))))

Run the command STANDARD-LISP and type 'foo RETURN in the
minibuffer. The input and output related to 'foo appear correctly in the
buffer *Standard LISP*. Now, in the minibuffer, press the down arrow
key, thereby generating an end of history user-error, then type 'bar
RETURN. The input and output related to 'bar appear incorrectly in the
*Messages* buffer. A workaround is to include the assignment (setq
standard-output (current-buffer)) that is commented out in the function

The distributed binary (i.e. not built by me) MS-Windows version of
Emacs 25.2 shows the same behaviour.
