This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.4.1 (i386-redhat-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
of 2005-05-18 on decompose.build.redhat.com

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

With Emacs 21.4, when I hit Ctrl-X Ctrl-B to list all buffers, for example, I always get a vertical split whereas with a widescreen monitor, a horizontal split would be better. My understanding from the GNU mailing list (see http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/help-gnu-emacs/2005-11/msg00630.html) is that this behavior is hardwired into the function pop-to-buffer and cannot be easily changed. Would be great to have an option to customize this behavior.
