    Sorry, now I'm utterly confused. The way I understood the manual
    is, that pop-to-buffer is buffer oriented, meaning that even if I
    set pop-up-frames to non-nil, a new frame is only opened if the
    buffer is not displayed in another frame. This solves my
    LaTeX-Xdvi problem, but doesn't work if I want to force

    gnuserv-visible-frame-function on the other hand is frame
    oriented. If there is no frame on my virtual screen, one pops up,
    even if the file is already displayed in another buffer.
    So with gnuclient, I can solve my LaTeX-Xdvi problem *and* if I

    (defun my-xemacs-info-other-frame ()
           (let (gnuserv-frame)

    I can call gnuclient -eval "(my-xemacs-info-other-frame)" and a
    frame pops up even if *INFO* is displayed in another frame.

    (defun my-info-other-frame ()
      (let ((pop-up-frames t))

    only works with emacsclient if *INFO* isn't displayed somewhere

    Sorry about pestering you with this. But I hope to get this right
    for my emacsclient/gnuclient wrapper script.
