Never show error buffer in currently active window #822

Investigating #648 led me to another small bug, I think. This should fix it, but since I'm not too familiar with window configuration stuff I'd like a second opinion :)

In short, the error message buffer is sometimes opened in the current window, masking the source code buffer. To reproduce:

  • Follow the instructions in #648 (including the checker definition) and open test1.txt
  • Wait for the error buffer to pop up
  • Move to the window displaying the error buffer with C-x o
  • Display test1.txt in that buffer as well (using C-x b)
  • Wait for the error buffer to pop up again.

On my machine, without the patch, the error buffer pops up and replaces the source buffer that the point was in:


Btw, how do you record good gifs?

Looks good to me, even though the meaning of this argument is pretty obscure 😕 I've cherry-picked the commit to master, and deleted the branch.

Thank you very much for fixing all these glitches in with the error message buffer, that's really awesome work! ❤️
