I split emacs vertically and have xterm-mouse-mode enabled (I am using PuTTY). If I split the left half horizontally, I can use my mouse to easily click between the buffers. If I attempt to click the right side, it becomes overtaken by a minibuffer window and I must close it and C-x o over like normal.

How can I configure Emacs to just let me click the right side?

Indeed, as I've mentioned in my post! –  Cyclone Nov 7 '13 at 0:18
And that should teach me to read more carefully, sorry :). I deleted my comment. –  terdon Nov 7 '13 at 0:29
No worries, we've all been there! –  Cyclone Nov 7 '13 at 0:32
What major mode, please, is the buffer that you click which results in a minibuffer being opened? –  lawlist Nov 7 '13 at 3:17
How can I check that, exactly? –  Cyclone Nov 8 '13 at 21:08
