I can't follow you here.  Shouldn't we remove the hook _when_ a Man
buffer is not displayed anymore.  That is, when
'Man-window-size-change' detects that no Man buffer is displayed
anymore, remove it from 'window-size-change-functions' and re-add it
as soon as a Man buffer gets displayed again.

I think 'Man-window-size-change' will have to take care of such cases.
Also we'll have to look into how 'follow-mode' works when displaying a
Man buffer in several side-by-side windows.

I used a timer in 'mouse-autoselect-window'.  It might be interesting
to come up with a generic function.
