I don't quite understand why you're using `frame-width' here.  It hardly
seems to DTRT when WINDOW is not full-width.  Can you try with

(setq split-window-preferred-function
      #'(lambda (window)
          (if (>= (window-width window) 60)
              (split-window window nil t)
            (split-window window))))

I'm afraid the default value of `split-width-threshold' is too large for
you.  Please try with a smaller value and tell me whether it still
behaves weirdly.  I yet have to find a solution how "sensibly" should
behave.  Can you suggest one?
