bug#39564:

Followup: The regression in Ivy appears to be fixed when
set-message-function is bound to nil at the top of the misbehaving
function. In general, it seems like, given the new defaults defined in
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/emacs.git/commit/?id=485b423e8f0df2711a850be7f254665f64ab0bdb,
it will be necessary to make a similar change to any existing function
that, say, calls read-key under the assumption that the prompt will
take over the mini-window. (At least when the prompt contains multiple
lines). I guess that's the fundamental issue here. The new behavior
may be a nice improvement, but it's unclear how much code there is out
there that relies on the old behavior.

(For the record, it looks like the Ivy discussion has moved to
https://github.com/abo-abo/swiper/issues/2397)
