Looks like the intended behavior for this code: the "[0 ..." part is
the text of the message displayed by the command bound to C-f; it is
enclosed in brackets to indicate that it is a message text separate
from the rest of the prompt.  This display of echo-area messages that
attempts not to overwrite the minibuffer prompt in an active
minibuffer is a new feature of Emacs 27.  By default, Emacs will not
let the mini-window grow enough to show the entire combined text of
the prompt and the message, but if you set max-mini-window-height to a
value 22 or greater, you will see this:

  0
  1
  2
  3
  4
  5
  6
  7
  8
  9
  10
  Test1:  [0
  1
  2
  3
  4
  5
  6
  7
  8
  9
  10
  Test2]

which is what I would expect, given the code you presented.

Going back to the original report, what is the bug here?

Thanks.
