find-file sometimes doesn't

In the last week, sometimes maybe 1 in 20 times, "C-x C-f (find-file)
RET" won't find the given file. However, the symptom is that if I'm
editing buffer "foo", and run find-file to open file bar, instead of
getting two equally-sized windows containing "foo" and "bar", I get two
"foo" windows, one of which is only three lines high. There is a slight
"light show" or noticeable flicker of buffers as if someone had forgotten
to use save-excursion. There aren't any clues in the *Messages* buffer.

Has anyone else seen this? Sorry, I not yet have a recipe, but will
provide more details when and if I get them.

Coincidentally in the last week, I've noticed that when Emacs starts,
instead of the splash screen taking up the entire frame, the last buffer
edited (I use desktop) appears, with a small GNU Emacs window at the
bottom saying to use C-l to start editing. The coincidence is that this
small window is also three lines and is accompanied by the same light
show as I mentioned above.
