Thanks for trying.  I guess we're in the same boat in that regard.

Me neither.  Sometimes Stefan's programming style is too sophisticated
for me.  I thought you might understand it better because I completely
forgot how this should be handled.

I can reproduce the behavior as you described it.  But this doesn't help
me in understanding it.

I don't understand `display-buffer--special-action'.  If you
send me a recipe of what you would like tried, I will follow it
and let you know what I see.

I provided a simple recipe from -Q to repro the problem, so
you too could follow your recipe.  I will be glad to do so as
well in my environment (MS Windows 7, and Cygwin installed),
in case the platform makes a difference.

Bug#9532?  Can you look into `display-buffer--special-action' to see
what goes wrong?

emacs -Q

In *scratch* evaluate:
(setq special-display-regexps '("[ ]?[*][^*]+[*]"))

C-x 5 b *scratch*

A new frame should be created, showing *scratch*.  None is.
Without making *scratch* special-display-p, *scratch* is shown,
correctly, in a separate frame.

Similarly, (pop-to-buffer "*scratch*" t) does not pop to *scratch*
in another window.  (display-buffer-other-frame "*scratch*"),
likewise, does not display the buffer in another frame.

If the buffer is not special-display-p then another new
frame/window is used, as it should be.  If it is
special-display-p then this should still be the case, but the
action instead becomes a no-op.

Special-display-p implies that the window is dedicated to the
buffer.  It does not imply that the buffer is somehow "dedicated"
to the window (such a notion does not exist).  A special-display
buffer should be shown in another frame/window when other-frame
is called for.
