First of all i should mention that all problem-reports should go to the
ECB-mailing list because ECB is not contained in the standard-distribution of
GNU Emacs (but maybe this would be not a bad idea ;-).
Well, back to your problem:
Please send a full bug-report with the command `ecb-submit-problem-report' to
In addition it would be fine if you could track down a situation which
reproduces the problem with a high percentage-rate, ie. a situation where the
problem either always or at least very often occurs - so i can reproduce it
with my environment.
Background: ECB-layout-engine should never use an ECB-window for displaying a
completion and for me it never does (and the last problem-report containing
such a problem arrives about one year ago!). But maybe with your environment
you have detected a new situation which ECB takes not into account. But in
general the adviced `display-buffer' of ECB is made to behave as if your frame
does not contain ECB-windows so it should give you the feeling as if the
edit-windows of the edit-area are the only windows of the frame. And until
your bug-report it gaves this feeling ;-)
