You don't give enough info to understand your situation. It doesn't sound like
you are starting from `emacs -Q', so I suspect some setting in your init file or
your `custom-file' is determining the behavior you see.
Try from `emacs -Q', and if you still see the problem, give us a recipe, step by
step. If not, then try to narrow down your init file to discover what is
causing that behavior.
When I do this, I see no such behavior:
`C-x 5 2' to get another frame.
`C-x C-f foo.el' in one frame.
`C-x b f TAB RET' in the other frame.
