If the buffer is already open somewhere debuger should just pick that
buffer. The problem is that sometimes this is not happening. Especially with
multi frame environments.

If the buffer is not visible, then the user can add a function to
display-buffer-overriding-action in order to set the frame.

I assume users who are dealing with custom multiframe environments have high
familiarity with `display-buffer` system. So adding such a function shouldn't be
a problem for them.
