If it stays in the same window it's probably because it uses
switch-to-buffer instead of pop-to-buffer (a common problem despite my
years of effort) or because of the stupid same-window-buffer-names
or same-window-regexps.

But your original post mentioned splitting the current window, which
doesn't ring a bell (although I don't rule out having seen it already).

I can't even remember which part of my .emacs is relevant and I have
a vested interest in finding out what problems normal users still encounter
when trying to set up such a config.  So I'd rather help you along than
give you my solution.
