I agree -- I think it's almost always the case that a field check is better
than a minibuffer check, because exactly the same situation can occur in
other applications of fields (e.g., comint, custom, etc).

BTW, filling in the minibuffer with fields did use to work correctly (I made
sure it was the case when I originally added the field code).
