Huh, it seems to only sometimes pop up a new frame.  For example, M-x
info doesn't pop up a new frame, it takes the current frame.  I'm
trying to get a usable setup with buffers in their own frames.

You menionted that you have such a setup, would you mind sharing
what's in your .emacs that does this?  I can't seem to get it to
reliably work more than 75% of the time.
