The ``other window'' part?  It means that the buffer will be displayed
in the window that we call in Emacs ``the other window''.  Since the
window to display is thus fixed, special-display-regexps and its ilk
cannot be applied, because they would change the window where the
buffer will be displayed.

Does that make sense?
