Users can avoid horizontal splitting by setting `split-width-threshold'
to nil.  They also can avoid vertical splitting (but for single-window
frames) by setting `split-height-threshold' to nil.

We can set the default of `split-width-threshold' to nil to get the
behavior you consider correct.  IIRC some people wanted the default
split to be horizontal for very wide frames.  I have no preferences
