I didn't mean to suggest either behavior was better or worse, I just
wanted to report the observation.  But I agree it certainly is better to
have uniform behavior, and no error is fine with me (at least, the
particular error message currently used in the no-header-line case seems
inappropriate).

That's exactly what I meant, and my question was just to be sure this
was what you wanted to achieve.

Not with fit-window-to-buffer, AFAICT.
