Interesting problem in itself, indeed.  Luckily, I'm satisfied with the
each area for that purpose.  Good luck!

I know you think dedicated windows suck and that I like them so much
that "when you have a hammer everything looks like a nail", but I think
this is really a good case to mark the window dedicated.  I'm not sure
whether set-window-configuration would do the right thing currently
(kill the window if the buffer died), but if it doesn't, it'd be
a clear bug that needs fixing.
