Its introduction modifies the behavior of splitting, resizing and
deleting windows in the order described in the example in the manual.
Bug reports #1806 and #9873 confirm that the behavior of Emacs 23 in
this regard is problematic, at least

You won't get the drift as long as you insist that an internal window is
"just a node in the window tree".

By resizing their parent window or a sibling of their parent window.  Or
by resizing the containing frame.  Or by resizing the minibuffer window.
