I found that annoying too.  The documentation says:

     By default, these commands split the window vertically when there is
  only one.  You can customize the variables `split-height-threshold' and
  `split-width-threshold' to split the window horizontally instead.

So setting split-width-threshold to nil solves the problem.

  (setq split-width-threshold nil)
