Make it ten lines high! (And 80 columns, screen-wide. A new frame would be OK 
for testing.)

Since I am also using the self-compiled Emacsen before they are released I 
remember a period when window splitting was a bit unpredictable (there were 
bugs in the code). Code from this period was never released. The developers 
made the released code finally behave in GNU Emacs like before. I've found the 
entry from lisp/ChangeLog.14:

2009-05-07  Martin Rudalics  <address@hidden>

        * window.el (split-window-sensibly): New function.
        (split-height-threshold, split-width-threshold): State in
        doc-string that these affect split-window-sensibly.
        Change customization subtype from number to integer.
        (window--splittable-p): Rename to window-splittable-p since it's
        referred to in doc-string of split-window-sensibly.  Update doc-string.
        (window--try-to-split-window): Unconditionally call
        split-window-preferred-function and move splitting functionality
        to split-window-sensibly (Bug#3142).
        (split-window-preferred-function): Rewrite doc-string.
        Don't allow nil as customization type.
