I cannot see how 'doc-view-mode' could be possibly affected by the
changes you identified below.  It doesn't run any of the affected
hooks.  Have you tried running 'doc-view-mode' without loading

These might be related although going through the sources of
‘pdf-view-mode’ I cannot see any problem.  'pdf-util-window-attach'
uses a workaround for deleting a window after running
'window-configuration-change-hook' and there I see a different source
of trouble:

'display-buffer-split-below-and-attach' calls 'window--display-buffer'
with a fifth argument and that has been changed in another commit.
Please remove the display-buffer-mark-dedicated argument in that call
and see whether the problem persists.  CC-ing Andreas to make an
appropriate change in pdf-util.el.

This should come from the 'image-display-size' call in
'pdf-view-image-size'.  Could you get a backtrace for it?
