This is a grave disadvantage.  `next-buffer' and `prev-buffer' should be
able to cycle all buffers.

BTW, not having `prev-buffer' in a Emacs release also gives an
opportunity to rename `prev-buffer' to `previous-buffer' to be
consistent with all other similar functions where currently we have:

prev-buffer                        previous-button
previous-char-property-change      previous-complete-history-element
previous-completion                previous-error
previous-error-no-select           previous-frame
previous-history-element           previous-line
previous-matching-history-element  previous-multiframe-window
previous-overlay-change            previous-property-change
previous-single-property-change    previous-window
