This had nothing to do with display-buffer-mark-dedicate: when we re-use
a window for a new buffer, clearly that window is not dedicated to that
buffer, since it was used for something else already.

Maybe there are cases where you might want to hijack a non-dedicated
window to show some buffer and make it dedicated, but that sounds like
a very rare case (I haven't seen such a use-case yet).  "Dedicated"
means "it's only used for that buffer".
