bug#22581: Strange minibuffer prompt on exiting Emacs

> The actual text shown in the minibuffer is
> "Quit this Ediff session? (y or n)  switch-frame-".
> (The frame switch event occurred because the little Ediff control
> panel frame went away and the main frame got activated.)
> The "switch-frame-" is of course not really part of the prompt. It is

> C-x 5 2 ;; make-frame-command
> C-h k ;; describe-key
> ;; Use the window manager to activate the other frame.
> ;; Minibuffer prompt is "Describe key (or click or menu item):  
> ;; *Help* buffer describes "RET", not "switch-frame RET".

Thanks for the report.  This is the same as bug#21797.

Bug#22068 is another instance of this.
