No, definitely not with my (non-default) setup.  Selecting a frame does not give
it the input focus.

Hence my need to call `select-frame-set-input-focus' in a few places.  And, I
would guess, hence the existence of two different functions: `select-frame' and

I'm no expert on any of this, obviously.  I added `s-f-s-i-f' long ago where I
found I needed it - `select-frame' was not sufficient.
