With emacs -Q the file is not shown in another window on my machine.  So
please report this as a bug either using emacs -Q or by providing us the
relevant details from your .emacs.

Please describe in the bug report what and how this happens.

I am used to.

Emacs 24 should behave as Emacs 23 in the example you gave.  So there
should be no need for such a command.
