Right.  In a "normal" session you have to create a minibuffer-only frame
first and then delete the normal frame to get uniform behavior.  Emacs
does not offer a function to remove the minibuffer window from a normal
frame so this is the best you can get.

Since I use it with my customizations only, such glitches are to be
expected.  And, as you know, mutter is not very child-frame friendly.

You can put it anywhere on the parent frame via 'pop-up-mini-host'
and/or 'pop-up-mini-position'.  If something is lacking here, it can be
added easily.
