Bug with key echo.

Execute the following two commands.

(define-key ctl-x-map "\C-p" nil)
(define-key ctl-x-map "\C-p\C-p" (lambda nil (interactive) (y-or-n-p "Woozle 

Now type C-x C-p and wait until the key echo appears.  Then type C-p

Instead of a display of
Woozle (y or n)
in the echo area, you get
C-x C-p C-p-
which makes it somewhat hard to guess at the question.  This bug has
been plagueing me for years, but I have not been able to come up with
a working test case for it.

It seems to be a combination of intermediate map and multiple key
stroke following that is involved here.
