In dired.el, near the top of a loong initialisation of the dired keymap
(line 1191), there's a line like this:

(define-key map [mouse-2] 'dired-mouse-find-file-other-window)

Looking at the definition of dired-mouse-find-file-other-window, you

(yes. Eek) So I would try something like the following:

Attachment: c.el
Description: application/emacs-lisp

Note that this is a bit rubbish - the only change is on the 3rd last
line of the function. If anyone knows whether it's possible to
dynamically bind dired-other-window to be dired for a sec while calling
the other version, it'd be a lot more elegant.

Anyway, that worked for me here!

C-x 0 deletes a window, so if you have the situation you described, when
you're in the window marked *

|  *   |      |
|      |      |

hitting C-x 0 will give you

I didn't know of existing code to do this, so I hacked something up

That said, it seems to work reasonably well here!
