I have never been happy with the way the major and minor mode scheme
interacts with recursive editing. (I have examined the Multics
Emacs and SINE schewmes too and I don't like them either.) Perhaps
switching into and out of the minibuffer should do a full turn-off/turn-on
modes sequence and the minibuffer should just ahve its own modes,
probably none of them, or something. Are there any modes that SHOULD
be on in the minibuffer?
The easy way to solve the immediate problem is just to have a
dont-expand-abbrevs flag that gets lambda bound over the call to the
function taht reads from the minibuffer, but that is ad hoc...
