Minibuffer changes in svn



p.s. I use ido for buffer switching, and that might be why I am
not hearing the default buffer twice.

The tweaks you see to emacspeak-advice.el were made while making
the feedback from  the new command gweb-google-at-point -- to get
the right output spoken from Google Suggest.

    Lukas> The default value is thus spoken twice.
