My "interesting" result is that eventually the `foo' buffer ends being
displayed on a regular window covering half the screen with its usual
modeline. That window wont go away easily (C-x 1 while the other window
is active has no effect).

I'm using a 1-month old Emacs, so maybe the above is due to bugs already
