If I understand you right - then this cannot happen.  You pass only one
KEY as the argument to `minor-mode-key-binding', and only bindings for
which KEY is a prefix are considered.  But `C-f' is not a prefix of `C-x
C-f'.

If you pass `C-f', then bindings starting with `C-x' (like C-x C-f as
you mentioned) are not considered.  If you pass `C-x', then bindings for
`C-f' are not in the list.


HTH,

Michael.
