I have the following in the
(("*" (display-buffer-in-side-window ((side . left) (window-width . 110)))))
If I understand correctly, this means that
(display-buffer (get-buffer-create "New buffer")) should be equivalent to
(display-buffer-in-side-window (get-buffer-create "New buffer") '((side . left) (window-width . 110)).
But it is not: the first command opens the buffer
New buffer at the bottom, but the second one opens it at the left.
Why does this happen?
