I cannot find any version of Emacs in which this is true.
Please tell me which version of Emacs you are using, and give a complete
example starting from emacs -q --no-site-file .

Here is mine:

emacs-23.3 -q --no-site-file
C-x m
C-x 4 m

   -> Emacs starts composing a second mail in a new window, not a new frame

Perhaps you are confused by Emacs's use of "window" and "frame"?
Please see the definitions of these terms in the Glossary in the Emacs
