This is intended behavior - the window is split, so you can see the
window where a new buffer will be displayed after you invoke
the next command (e.g. 'ffap').

An example of "next command" is 'ffap' in the earlier example.

Yes, this will allow using S-M-up from the active minibuffer.

Yes, killing the buffer without deleting its window will display
some random buffer in its place - this is bad.

I'm not sure if switch-to-buffer should use pop-to-buffer-same-window,
probably not.
