cursor-in-echo-area ignores the default cursor type

After setting the default cursor type to something other than the default
block cursor:

  (setq default-cursor-type 'bar)

and using a function that internally sets the variable `cursor-in-echo-area'
to non-nil, e.g.:

  (y-or-n-p "prompt: ")


  `C-h k'

the specified cursor type is ignored and the minibuffer in all these cases
displays the block cursor.

This is not a critical bug, but it would be nice to fix this if possible.

Also the prompt of key-reading commands (like `C-h k') is not highlighted
using the `minibuffer-prompt' face.  This could be fixed as well.
