The prompt to confirm exiting Ediff has gone a bit strange. To
reproduce in "emacs -Q" (assuming files "x" and "y" exist in the
working directory):

M-x ediff RET x RET y RET q

The expected prompt is
"Quit this Ediff session? (y or n)  ".

The actual text shown in the minibuffer is
"Quit this Ediff session? (y or n)  switch-frame-".

(The frame switch event occurred because the little Ediff control
panel frame went away and the main frame got activated.)

The "switch-frame-" is of course not really part of the prompt. It is
rendered like what you get when you enter an incomplete key sequence,
like "C-x-". It seems as though switch-frame is being treated as a
prefix key, but it's not treated as such in most circumstances. Try
this for example:

C-x 5 2 ;; make-frame-command
C-h k ;; describe-key
;; Use the window manager to activate the other frame.
;; Minibuffer prompt is "Describe key (or click or menu item):  switch-frame-")
;; *Help* buffer describes "RET", not "switch-frame RET".
