bug#18326: 24.4.50; allow-no-window for async-shell-command in temp buffer

I tried this:
'(("\\*Async Shell Command\\*" . (display-buffer-no-window . nil))))
(defun sudo-shell-command (command)
(interactive "MShell command (root): ")
(sudo-shell-command "touch /dev/null")
The buffer still pops up.
The docs say:
(async-shell-command COMMAND &optional OUTPUT-BUFFER ERROR-BUFFER)
To run COMMAND without displaying the output
in a window you can configure `display-buffer-alist' to use the action
`display-buffer-no-window' for the buffer `*Async Shell Command*'.
OK, would be be able to tell me how I do that? It seems that I've now
tried two seemingly sensible ways to do this configuration, and the
docs led me to the previous configuration, and not clearly to anything
display-buffer-alist is a variable defined in `window.el'.
This is a list of elements (CONDITION . ACTION), where:
CONDITION is either a regexp matching buffer names, or a
function that takes two arguments - a buffer name and the
ACTION argument of `display-buffer' - and returns a boolean.
ACTION is a cons cell (FUNCTION . ALIST), where FUNCTION is a
function or a list of functions. Each such function should
accept two arguments: a buffer to display and an alist of the
same form as ALIST. See `display-buffer' for details.
(display-buffer-no-window BUFFER ALIST)
Display BUFFER in no window.
If ALIST has a non-nil `allow-no-window' entry, then don't display
a window at all.
