This means that we have two different systems.  Here (Windows XP SP2)
the scenario above makes the *shell* buffer partially hide the *Process
List* buffer and typing yes/no has the desired effect.  Now we can only
wait till someone confirms either your or my behavior.

BTW, is it possible that Cygwin interferes here?  With Cygwin (rootless)
you apparently can't pop up an existing frame, see

It's a leftover from `quit-window'.  Thanks for noticing.
