Could you please edebug `display-buffer' and find out how the `let' part
below gets executed in your case

     ((let ((frames (or frame
                        (and (or use-pop-up-frames
                                 (not (last-nonminibuffer-frame)))
        (setq window-to-use
              (catch 'found
                ;; Search frames for a window displaying BUFFER.  Return
                ;; the selected window only if we are allowed to do so.
                (dolist (window (get-buffer-window-list buffer 'nomini frames))
                  (when (or can-use-selected-window
                            (not (eq (selected-window) window)))
                    (throw 'found window))))))

Thanks, martin.
