Ah, sorry. Here is the modified version which I've actually checked ;-)

(let ((foo (get-buffer-create "foo.el"))
      (bar (get-buffer-create "bar.el")))
  (switch-to-buffer foo)
  (insert "(a")
  (display-buffer bar t))

In principle, in this very awkward situation display-buffer has 3 options:

1) To display buffer in selected window -- but not-in-this-window=t.

2) To display buffer in a new frame -- but pop-up-frames says we
*never* make a separate frame.

3) To display buffer in place of completions window -- but that window
is "dedicated".

To me option 3 seems the least unexpected.

Anyway, something needs to be fixed, as current documentation for
pop-up-frames is wrong.

No, the completions buffer plays important role.

Thanks for your support,
