In one setup, I set up pop-up-windows to nil, and even advice
pop-to-buffer to call switch-to-buffer instead.  In this scenario, a
recent change to slime causes problems by insisting that slime display
repl output in a certain way.  I had asked about this earlier here on
this list --

FWIW I work around it with the appended patch to slime.el.  (Although I
do not recommend this approach)


    eliminate popping up the repl buffer during interactive eval.
    * (slime-eval-with-transcript-no-popups): New variable. Set this to
       avoid popups.
