C-x 2 and C-x 3 should always do what their name suggests, except when
such a split would create a window that's smaller than window-min-height
/ window-min-width.  But even in that case, I don't get a different
split but a message is shown telling me that the window is too small to
be split.  (However, I'm testing with emacs 24, but I would be suprised
if emacs 23.3.1 was that much different.)

Anyway, can you give a recipe for reproducing that wrong split starting
with "emacs -Q"?

(What the world needs (I think) is not
      (a Lisp (with fewer parentheses))
      but (an English (with more.)))
