IIUC you tried to control which window pop-to-buffer was going to use,
by selecting windows, hoping to control what get-lru-window returns?
If you need that kind of control, you should either not use
pop-to-buffer and change pop-to-buffer to do what you want.

The window used by pop-to-buffer depends on so many different factors
that it's illusory to think you can control it from the outside.
