For example:

1. `gdb' a C++ program
2. `gdb-many-windows'
3. switch to "*input/output of main*"
4. issue `ido-switch-buffer`

=> the buffer is switched in the "main.cc" window, although the point was in the
"*input/output of main*" window. I'm guessing that's because
"*input/output of main*" is dedicated. In fact, all of them are, except
the two that I actually want to see always: "main.cc" and "*gud-main*".

This doesn't work on 24.4.1.
