Because "M-x man" doesn't use display-buffer?

Try customizing Man-notify-method to the value `pushy'.
To my blame I was confused by same-window-regexps
and didn't tried to figure out this variable myself...
Thank you very much!

PS. Maybe it should be documented (noticed) in the documentation
here
http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/emacs/Force-Same-Window.html
?
Because I personally considered that the M-x man affected
by same-window-regexps as M-x shell after reading 25.4 chapter
of the doc...
