What is bad in user customization?  It's normal customization
that corresponds to the old way of using same-window-regexps.
It's not responsibility of user customization to workaround
deficiencies in core functions.  The task of next-error-no-select
is to check if the buffer is already displayed, not to pop up
a new buffer.  There is no such problem in other commands that
use pop-to-buffer.
