I would like to run emacs so that it uses a few specific X resources in
my ~/.Xdefaults file with a different instance name than the "emacs"

frames (initial and subsequent), which is one of the reasons I prefer

But specifying the X instance name via the --name "foo" command line
option only applies the "foo" resources to the initial frame, and sets
its title to "foo"; subseqent frames have the selected buffer name as
the title (as normal and desired), but don't use the "foo" resources.
