you're right, i have that set to current-window, as you might expect. and it is reasonable to expect that any patch would continue to respect it. thanks for your response. jack> A final advantage I'd like to note for pop-to-buffer and quit-restore-window, is that these are the mechanisms used by many built-in Emacs functions to pop up and close windows, such as *Help* windows. i'm not sure what the latest is on what one should use. or whether the latest is on what one should use is problematic for my modest needs. maybe you have looked into the former. help does things like popping up in the fisrt place, opening a linked help buffer, and opening up source code. idk if they all use the same mechanism? i've had issues with 2-3 of them. anomalies on rare occasions occur despite my kludging. iirc stefan once wrote that using the wrong function will break his configuration. there are subtly different purposes for displaying a buffer. one covers the minibuffer, or something.
