It goes without saying that I didn't mean to have those features
_unless_ enable-recursive-minibuffers is non-nil.

The problem is, even with enable-recursive-minibuffers, you cannot,
e.g., visit a file from within the minibuffer.  You get the error
message described by Juri.  You can try it like this:

     emacs -q
     M-x C-x C-f ~/.emacs RET

At this point Emacs signals an error: "Cannot switch buffers in
minibuffer window".
