Annoying resizing of Rmail windows

With yesterday's trunk, I see an annoying resizing of windows when I
work in Rmail.  (I didn't try to use Rmail with Emacs 24 for a long

My window configuration in an Rmail frame is to split the frame in 2,
and have the Rmail summary window above the window where Rmail shows
the current message.  I normally make the summary window small, so
that only a few lines are shown in it, with the rest of the frame
taken by the message display.

I have even-window-heights set to nil in my ~/.emacs.  I expect that,
once I determine the size of each of these two windows, they are never
resized by Emacs, only by myself.

This workd in Emacs 23.3, but doesn't work with 24.0.50: whenever
Rmail displays another message (e.g., when I type `n' or `p' to go to
the next or previous message), the window sizes are "evened", although
even-window-heights is nil.

Stepping with Edebug through the Rmail code reveals that the windows
are resized by the function rmail-pop-to-buffer, which calls

I see that the value of display-buffer-alist has this:

  (reuse-window-even-sizes . t)

Shouldn't that part be gone when even-window-heights is nil?

In any case, please help me get rid of this annoyance, TIA.
