Remember to cover the basics, that is, what you expected to happen and
what in fact did happen.  You don't know how to make a good report?  See


Your bug report will be posted to the Org mailing list.


1. emacs -Q
2. Create the following org file

#+begin_src emacs-lisp

3. Execute the source block

Observed behaviour:

The block returns, but the window is not splitted

Expected behaviour:

The window is splitted

The reason of the observed behaviour is that
org-babel-execute:emacs-lisp wraps the code block evaluation into
save-window-excursion. Thus window manipulation is impossible from
within babel blocks.

The real case scenario when one would need to change window layout from
within babel block is a window setup for a project development.
If certain project requires working with specific window configuration,
this can be defined by adding all the setup into a babel block somewhere
in the project. Then, the layout could be applied just by hitting C-c
C-c on the code block once one need to work on the project. However, it
is not possible with the current org-babel-execute:emacs-lisp
