Hello,

I don't know if this is what you want but:

(defun kill-buffer-and-window (BUFFER)
  "Kills a buffer and the accompanying window. If the buffer is not
displayed in the active frame nothing happens to the window 
configuration"
  (interactive "bKill buffer:")
  (let ((window))
    (if (> (count-windows) 1)
        (setq window (get-buffer-window BUFFER)))
    (kill-buffer BUFFER)
    (if window
        (delete-window window))))
    
does something alike.

*Warning* After writing this function I discovered that there already
exists a built in function with the same name, however It seems the
built function does not allow you to select which buffer to kill. In
my implementation nothing happens if you kill a buffer which does not
occupy a window in the current frame.

Joakim
