It does.  But it does the same on an old verion of trunk here too.  Are
you sure that the version of throw-one.el you sent me works with your
old Emacs?

BTW, in both versions I get the error when I hit c-] already.

Anyway, let's see what happens.  `display-buffer' should execute this

      (while (and specifiers (not (window-live-p window)))
        (setq window
               ((eq method 'fun-with-args)
                (apply (cadr specifier) buffer (cddr specifier))))))


(defun 1on1-display-*Completions*-frame (buf &optional args)
  (let (return-window)
    (setq return-window (select-window
                         (funcall special-display-function buf args)))
    (redirect-frame-focus (selected-frame) 1on1-minibuffer-frame)

returning return-window.  After that `display-buffer' leaves the loop
because return-window is hopefully live and

      (or (and (window-live-p window) window)

returns window (that is your return-window).  So I can't imagine that
`display-buffer' got anything to do with this.

However, I noticed that I have changed `pop-to-buffer'.  Does it help if
you use the version below?  It doesn't help here as I explained above.


(defun pop-to-buffer (&optional buffer-or-name specifiers norecord label)
  (interactive "BPop to buffer:\nP")
  (let ((buffer (normalize-buffer-to-display buffer-or-name))
        (old-window (selected-window))
        (old-frame (selected-frame))
        new-window new-frame)
    (set-buffer buffer)
    (setq new-window (display-buffer buffer specifiers label))
    (unless (eq new-window old-window)
      ;; `display-buffer' has chosen another window, select it.
      (select-window new-window norecord)
      (setq new-frame (window-frame new-window))
      (unless (eq new-frame old-frame)
        ;; `display-buffer' has chosen another frame, make sure it gets
        ;; input focus and is risen.
        (select-frame-set-input-focus new-frame)))
