This is exactly the same probem as the last one with dired and the same
change -- using pop-to-buffer-same-window instead of switch-to-buffer in
find-file -- fixes it.  Since the dired change exposed a problematic
dependency on switch-to-buffer in todo-mode.el (since fixed), if there
are other packages that have a similar dependency, making the same
change in find-file runs the risk of changing behavior in these
packages.  But like with todo-mode.el, presumably it would be better to
expose and eliminate such a dependency than to leave it as a possibly
ticking time-bomb.  So should we go ahead and make this change to
find-file?  (I wonder if there are more such cases waiting in the
