You are right.
If you try looking at minibuffer-scroll-window, it contains the
previous minibuffer while entering latin-2-p....

What's even worse is that if you hit TAB at that point, the completion
window appears - with the mode line indicating it as the selected window.

So the idea to use minibuffer-scroll-window as the "selected window"
while the minibuffer window is selected has some drawbacks.

I guess I need to make a new internal variable similar to
"minibuffer-scroll-window" which does NOT change while the minibuffer
window is the selected window...
