How exactly are you cycling through the buffers? If you know the names of 
the buffers, simply using C-x b with a partial-string can complete the buffer
name for you. If you don't know the names of the buffers you're interested in,
you're still going ot require casting an eye on the buffer list. Really, what's
3 extra buffer names? 

I admit, when I first started using emacs, those ephemeral buffers got in my 
way. Now I don't notice them.

- mgsk.

P.S. If you're not, you should probably be using IDO[1].
