Frame-switch should not systematically empty the echo area, IMO.
Perhaps there is no easy way to fix the problem for this scenario
or similar (anytime the message makes no sense with a different
frame selected). Dunno.
But note that the problem does not occur when a different window
(not frame) is selected. For example, with a single frame with
two windows showing two buffers, `C-x C--' in one window shows
the message, but as soon as you select the other window (e.g.
clicking in it) the message goes away and the scaling command
is quit (e.g. selecting the window with the scaled text again
does not redisplay the message).
Feel free to close this bug, if you don't see a solution.
(I don't have a patch to fix it.) Or perhaps leave it open,
in case it can be fixed in the future. Ideally, selecting a
different frame should be handled, I think, similarly to
selecting a different window.
