bug#17554: 24.3.91; [Regression] re-usage of dired *Marked Files* buffer window

IIUC we now use `display-buffer' for displaying the list of marked files
and completions and both seem to backfire in the present case.

A regression. It happens because `display-buffer-pop-up-window' obeys
`window-min-height' which is 4, by default. Subtracting one for the
mode-line gives three lines. If you mark at least three files you won't
see it. We could add a `window-height' alist entry to fix this. Juri -
any ideas where? My knowledge of `dired' is about zero so I don't want
to add any such switch without some advice.

Which is much better indeed. You can customize `split-height-threshold'
to get three windows again - the *Completions* buffer then appears at the
bottom when the question is asked. But the default would really look
better with three windows. Juri - any ideas?
