So you somewhere have settings for this buffer in
`special-display-buffer-names' or `special-display-regexps'.  Why can't
you send me them?

I need a simple recipe from emacs -Q.  If you use an outside function in
any of these please use a dummy function I can run on both Emacs 23 and
Emacs 24 to see the differences.  If it's already difficult for you to
go through the debugger with your functions why do you think I can do
any better?  What I need are your settings wrt special-display-... and
the buffer in question.  Why can't you post these?

Probably because `pop-up-frames' is t on your system so
`pop-up-frame-alist' prevails.  Again, what are the
special-display-... related values for *Completions*?
