So let me try to explain this once more:

(1) Whether the buffer shall be killed or buried is decided by the
    function setting up the completion buffer.

(2) Whether the window showing the completion buffer is deleted or not
    is decided by (i) whether the buffer shall be killed or buried and,
    if the window appears on a standalone frame and the buffer shall be
    buried, (ii) the value of `frame-auto-hide-function'.

Bug#9724 is about (1) only.  Bug#9639 is about (2) only and not relevant
here.  Merging these two bugs was an incorrect decision.
