[ (iswitchb-mode 1)
  (global-set-key (kbd "C-c b b") (quote switch-to-buffer)) ]

Well, this is a possible workaround.  But is it correct behavior of
`iswitchb-mode' to shadow the original `switch-to-buffer' command?
AFAICS the documentation  mentions only rebinding of keys:

,----[ (info "(emacs)Iswitchb") ]
|    Iswitchb global minor mode provides convenient switching between
| buffers using substrings of their names.  It replaces the normal
| definitions of `C-x b', `C-x 4 b', `C-x 5 b', and `C-x 4 C-o' with
| alternative commands that are somewhat "smarter."

Bye, Reiner.
