Well, kind of (more below).

Oh... I only checked `display-buffer-names', which is nil by default.

Well, I'm sorry but I'll obviously need some assistance. As I explained,
what I'm used to is this:

            split-height-threshold = 80
            split-width-threshold = 150
            pop-up-windows = t
            fullscreen window width => 158
            fullscreen window height => 59

... meaning that the first new window is automatically split
_horizontally_ (resulting in two windows side by side).

With Emacs from window-pub, even when I change `min-height' in the
default value of `display-buffer-regexps' to 1000 and `min-width' to 10,
I still get a vertical split!

So as I said, I have no idea what "something more reasonable" should
actually look like... :-|

Could you provide a value for `display-buffer-regexps' that should
produce the behaviour I expect (or at least some other kind of sensible
behaviour -- I don't consider preferring vertical splits of a
much-wider-than-high window sensible at all)?

Thank you,
