Btw, I think by ``command'' the comment you cited means the command
that called `minibuffer-message'.  For example, the message "No match"
is displayed when I type TAB to complete a string that has no
completions; in this case, ``the command'' is the one bound to the TAB
key in the minibuffer, and that command is indeed done when the
message is visible.  Perhaps that is the cause of your confusion: you
seem to think that ``the command'' is whatever caused Emacs to enter
the minibuffer in the first place.
