I know why the code gives this result.  But still, result is not good.
I think it's better to end up with

It may be suboptimal, but at least it doesn't end up with a weird window
arrangement displaying some randomly chosen old buffer.  It's easy for
the user to hit C-x 3 before running calendar, if she doesn't like
this behavior; much easier than trying to fix the mess of the
current code, when you're not happy with its choices.
