No, my frame is huge.  The problem is that it is already divided up,
including a small window that sometimes/often gets chosen by Emacs for

I don't know; I've never tried it.  I don't often try to do anything to
a window other than the current one without leaving it.  I'm a fairly
experienced Emacs user; it seems to me that if I was stumped by this
there must be a problem.
