so, this clearly isn't a very important bug, since it's been with us

though (clearly, if i've only noticed it recently), so if other people
think the status quo is good, that's fine.
i must be fumble-fingering a lot these days, because i seem to be
accumulating unwanted buffers that i didn't use to notice.  the
downside, of course, are the false positives:  you do ":e newfile",
and realize you need to look at something (":e something"), and
when you go to switch back ("__" or ":e#") you find you have to
retype the ":e newfile" because it's gone.  this is why i'd understand
if the feature's unwanted.

anyway...  here's a patch that puts it back the way it used to be.

thanks (I seem to recall some discusson about it, perhaps I intended to make it an optional feature with yet another mode)
