Subject: bug#9084: 24.0.50; displaying man pages splits the window and formats the text for the full width of the whole frame rather than for the width of the window the text is displayed in, which is only 1/2 the width of the frame

Exactly, and it doesn't go along with whatever else you use emacs for
/because/ it has its own window configuration, same as displaying a
manpage or a help buffer has.

Using an overall window layout as I described means to run gnus within
one of the windows I created.  That is not possible because windows
cannot be "frameified".  Setting `gnus-use-full-window' to nil doesn't
help that.

And if it's not gnus destroying the window layout, something else will.
