This is the exact recipe:

emacs -Q

Start by evaluating this in *scratch*

 (get-buffer-create "foo")
 '((use-side-window bottom 0) (pop-up-window-set-height . 1)))

Now do a C-h f <some-function-name> INTRO

The frame is splitted into two windows, one for *scratch* and another
for *Help*, "foo" is gone, C-x 1 does not work from *scratch*, C-x 1
from the *Help* buffer reports

byte-code: Cannot make side window the only window

It seems that Emacs reuses that window for displaying other buffers
(*Help*, in the recipe described above)
