But I think server.el does this on purpose: if it didn't switch to the
new frame, you couldn't start typing into it after invoking
emacsclient, even when there's no menu displayed.  Wouldn't that be
confusing?

That is easy.

Does the fact that you type into one frame and get response in another
count as "a bit strangely"?  Then we don't need to do anything except
to add some simple detection of the frame switch, see below.

The crash happened because the frame switch went unnoticed, and we
tried to use face IDs from one frame on another.  This no longer
happens, and I will add a simple code that will quit the menu when it
sees a frame switch.

Thanks.
