bug#6786: 23.2; Ido-mode switch-to-buffer switches frames

From: Joel James Adamson
Subject: bug#6786: 23.2; Ido-mode switch-to-buffer switches frames
Date: Tue, 03 Aug 2010 14:35:48 -0400
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.2 (gnu/linux)

emacs -Q; open a new frame using "C-x 5 2" and switch to that frame.
Then switch from *scratch* to *Messages* in the first frame.  Enable
ido-mode using "M-x ido-mode".  Switch to the second frame and try
switching to *Messages*.  The point (and focus) move to the other

Setting the ido-mode variables `ido-default-file-method' and
`ido-default-buffer-method' to 'selected-window does not change this

This is infuriating!  I should be able to switch to whatever buffer I
want with multiple frames and not have the focus change.  Let me give
you an example: I have a gdb session running, so I have several frames,
one for output, one for backtrace and one for the gdb controller.  For
some reason the gdb frame was split into two windows and I accidentally
deleted the wrong one and now the Separate IO is going into the gdb
buffer.  However, when I try to to switch back to the *gud* buffer, it
puts the point in a completely different window.  I don't want *gud* in
that frame, I want it in the one I'm trying to put it in!  NOTE: THIS
