Ok, after setting switch-to-visible-buffer to nil it got better, but it
is not how it was with Emacs 22 (okay, I have emerged from a long time

My main problem is with the *mail* buffer (I have mail-user-agent set to
'sendmail-user-agent).  After I send mail, the *mail* buffer is buried,
but after a while it pops up.  I would expect that, being buried, it is
the last choice as the other buffer.  Apparently it is not.

I don't know why, and I have not time to investigate now, sorry.  But if
you care to suggest some ideas, I may find the time sooner or later :)
