Ok, so the (pop-up-window (other)) is incorrect (or incomplete) and
maybe unuseful in this case.

No problem if you have not git, just download the tarball here:

Last revision have bug fixed with the code above, just comment it out,

The relevant code is in anything.el starting at line 3123 at:
;; (@* "Utility: Persistent Action")

and more exactly in `anything-persistent-action-display-buffer'.

Follow the recipe i sent in precedent mail.
To see what is expected use the fixed code.

You will find a pdf file in the ../doc directory, even if it's not
up to date, it can help you if you are not familiar with anything.
