Unfortunately, `minibuffer-selected-window' is useless for Dired.
It returns the wrong window.  Instead of returning the original Dired
buffer's window it returns " *Marked Files*".

How this can be reproduced:
1. emacs -Q
2. (setq enable-recursive-minibuffers t)
3. `C-x d'
4. Mark more than 1 file
5. Type `C'
6. Type `M-: (window-buffer (minibuffer-selected-window)) RET'

Result: #<buffer  *Marked Files*>
