   Here a new window pops up . . .

I updated again via git at 5-Jul-11 23:51 UTC, and can no longer
reproduce this behavior; C-x 4 b seems to work as it always has.  Thanks
for investigating.

   If Emacs can't split a window I currently make a new frame because the
   doc-string of `switch-to-buffer-other-window' explicitly says that "The
   selected window will be used only if there is no other choice" and
   making a new frame _is_ another choice.  If people think that reusing
   the selected window is a better choice I can easily do that.

   Thanks, martin

I have no opinion; I rarely use more than two windows per frame, so
there's plenty of room.

   Thanks again,

                                        -- Bob Rogers
