I am also recently faced with with some window annoyances which are --
I think -- more annoying than the above because I cant seem to work
around them at all.

When I want to compare to buffers using ediff-buffers, I often want
the buffers side-by-side (C-x 3) rather than the default one-above-
other (C-x 2). Even if I take the trouble to arrange the windows as I
want and then invoke ediff-buffers  emacs is adamant enough to remake
the windows up-down, quite ignoring my configuration!
