The problem is that the cursor jumps to the distant part of the frame
too far from the current focus.  It takes additional efforts to bring
it back where the input focus was.  It's more about visual perception.

Just to play around in these windows, not to work or use them :-)

It seems the logic of deciding to which sibling to give the space back
is fine now.  The need is to select the same window that got the space
after C-x 0.
