Hello Martin.

I have not set either of these; I do not know what or where they are.

I think that I have done what you ask, with both 25.1 and 23.2.  However,
none of the listed functions exists on 23.2

08-19-37: the result of invoking 25.1 with -Q over the network with ssh

08-23-08: after loading .emacs

08-24-07: after enlarging the frame by clicking on the top right +

08-47-05: a new invocation, no -Q

09-05-33: the result of invoking 23.2 with -Q over the network with ssh

09-06-42: after loading .emacs (the same file as above, not even a copy)

09-07-41: after enlarging the frame by clicking on the top right +

09-10-06: a new invocation, no -Q

I think that it is important not to concentrate on this over-the-network
aspect, except for what it shows about the emacs 25.1 frame display somehow
becoming disconnected from its window-manager window, in contrast to 23.2,
and the further conclusion that it seems impossible that my popups are the
cause of the problem since they are not involved.  However, this
frame/window disconnect does seem to be a significant clue about the cause
of problem 3 on a single machine where my popups are involved.
