Worse! With that code you either get:

  compilation-set-window-height: Wrong type argument: window-live-p, nil

Or if you s/ignore/'ignore/, then you get a separate frame that
occludes your work!

Thanks for an intriguing suggestion, though.

Note that the error isn't with grep, it's with next-error.
