In my .emacs, I have pop-up-windows set to nil. If I change that setting
to t, then visual-line-mode keeps working when C-c C-l is used to insert
a link. Changing pop-up-windows back to nil causes the bad behavior.

One reason I want pop-up-windows to be set to nil is because I
frequently use C-x C-b to look at the buffer list. If pop-up-windows is
set to t, then C-x C-b opens the buffer list in a pop-up window while
the active cursor is in the other window. This is ridiculous.

I found this message about org-mode and pop-up windows in the mailing
list archives:


While the issue described is not the same as mine, the complaint about
org-mode not playing nice when pop-up-windows is set to nil is still valid.
