You mean it will reuse a pre-existing window and change the buffer
displayed in that window ?
In that case indeed, pop-to-buffer might not be what you want, but I don't
understand when a frame is going to be opened, then, unless you're thinking
of a multiple-X-server situation, in which case the --display argument of
emacsclient should be what you want (although it's only be lightly tested).

Or do you mean that if the buffer is already displayed in a window but
on another display, then pop-to-buffer fails to open a new window/frame
on the right display ?  That might be: there are many such bugs in
a multiple-display situation.  Please report such problems to gnu.emacs.bug
via M-x report-emacs-bug.

But I can't easily check what the above code does: are you trying to force
the creation of a new frame that shows the same *info* buffer a second time
on the same display or is it on a separate display ?
