This is a usability bug.

Observed Behavior
=================

 1. Start Emacs; Open a second frame.
 2. (Two frames are open)
 3. Choose "Preferences..." from the application menu ("Emacs").
 4. (An "Emacs Preferences" Window opens)
 5. Click "Default Font..."
 6. (a font panel opens)
 7. Select a font
 8. (nothing happens)
 9. Click on a currently open emacs frame (not the Preferences window).
10. (the Preferences window loses keyboard focus)
11. Select a font (from the font panel)
12. (The font of the currently focused frame will change.)
13. (The font of the second frame will not change.)

Expected Behavior
=================

By convention, the "Preferences..." item in a Mac Application opens a
window in global settings that effect the entire application may be
manipulated.  This is what a user expects.

I would expect the "Default Font..." button to lead to a font panel
which sets the default font for all frames, persistently.

I would not expect it to require me to first focus a frame.

I would not expect it to to then change only the font for that frame.
