Thanks for the help.  The problem was with display-buffer-for-wide-screen.el
 http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/download/display-buffer-for-wide-screen.el

Once I removed that from my .emacs, things worked fine.  
I would still like to see a proper example of elisp code setting the display-buffer-alist.

Thanks,
Paddy

With emacs -Q the file is not shown in another window on my machine.  So
please report this as a bug either using emacs -Q or by providing us the
relevant details from your .emacs.

Please describe in the bug report what and how this happens.

Emacs 24 should behave as Emacs 23 in the example you gave.  So there
should be no need for such a command.
