"manual" is the Dired buffer of the directory containing the PDF file.

Thanks, this sounds plausible.

Yes.  The trace I posted ends at that point, but as I wrote above, after
5-10 seconds of no further traces, the above two lines appeared, and
then I killed the buffer.  I mentioned that in case it might be
relevant.  Sorry for the confusion.

Ah, that seems likely.  I do have several timers running, I'll see if I
can deactivate them and whether that results in no image display.
