I didn't understand the bug fix. I thought it was changing the way the
frame was positioned when negative arguments are given, however it
seems that misfeature already exists, and this fix was only a subtle
change to that misfeature. So this bug fix is not the problem, it is
the misfeature of treating negative coordinates specially.
