I agree with Luc on this one.

The code may be a bit misleading there, because the return value of
the 'switch-to-buffer' call isn't really used for its conditional
value in the 'and', it's just one of the things that needs to happen
in the sequence of events.  But it's still correct.  If you advise a
function in such a way as to change its documented return value, you
should be prepared for code to stop working...
