Point of wrong window used in read-from-minibuffer?

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

- Load a vhdl file
- Divide emacs into two windows vertically, both showing the same buffer
- Jump to the end of the buffer in the upper window
- Switch to the lower window, near the beginning
- Type "signal " (with a space afterwards), this triggers the template insertion
  mechanism for a signal 
- type any name at the minibuffer prompt, eg. test and press return.
- type any type at the minibuffer prompt, eg. std_logic and press return.
    -> ! The region between the signal and the point in the other buffer is
    deleted ! 
- type any initialization value at the minibuffer prompt and press return.
    -> Error message: "byte-code: Invalid search bound (wrong side of point)"

The problem is triggered in vhdl-template-field, it seems that
read-from-minibuffer switches to the point position of the wrong window.

I just did a "cvs update". 
In previous emacs versions (some weeks older), the bug was already triggered
after the first minibuffer input.
I tried this with a 21.3 emacs without an error.

If you need an example vhdl file, I can send one to you.
