    Why is it necessary ?

What is necessary is for there to be an event that wakes up

                           The select-window event is bound
    to handle-select-window which will do the selection (including changing the
    current buffer) so when we get back into read_key_sequence, the current
    buffer should have been properly switched already.

If this event does the job, things ought to work.  But apparently they
don't work.  I can't tell for certain what the problem is, of course,
but the problem is extremely suggestive of a failure for
read_key_sequence to recognize what happened.
