I've looked into comint.el.  It's apparently based on window
configurations and restores the old configuration when you do
`choose-completion' or type SPACE.  I don't see where it deletes the
window when you do something else.  Very contrived code.

Hm...  What about setting `display-buffer-function' to something like:

(defun my-display-buffer (buffer flag)
  (let (window display-buffer-function)
    (when (and (= (length (window-list)) 2)
               (setq window (get-buffer-window "*Completions*")))
      (set-window-dedicated-p window nil))
    (display-buffer buffer flag)))
