Today's GNU Emacs CVS snapshot, Thu, 2007 Oct  4  23:03 UTC
GNU Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.10.13)

    I have no problem with [detailed explanation]

    [Problem being unable to do  buffer-menu-other-window after
    desktop-read in a new instance]

It fails for me after removing all my past .emacs.desktop* files.
Here are the steps:

In a shell in my home directory,

    rm .emacs.desktop*

Then I start an instance of GNU Emacs  with -Q -D and invoke

    M-x buffer-menu-other-window

which succeeds as expected.  Next, after visiting a file

    M-x desktop-save

Then I kill that instance of Emacs.

Note, in a shell

    $ ls -al .emacs.desktop*
    -rw-r--r-- 1 bob bob 937 2007-10-04 23:33 .emacs.desktop

I start a new instance of Emacs and invoke

    M-x buffer-menu-other-window

which also succeeds as expected.
Then I delete the buffer list and invoke

    M-x desktop-read

Then I again try

    M-x buffer-menu-other-window

and it fails with the message, Selecting deleted buffer.
