bug#25943: 21.5 Frame Display Difficulties

Hello Martin,

The summary conclusion is that Problem 3 exists both with and without GTK.

The results are somewhat fascinating because of the differences in
performance, which, of course, you cannot see.  Sometimes problem 3 is
easy to see, sometimes it takes several frame creations and deletions.
There is one result where running over the network improves performance!
Running over the network is included because the results, and what I see,
make it hard to avoid speculating that timing/race conditions are at the
root of problem 3.

Here is some detail.  Computer Mneme and Erota run Linux Mint 18.1,
computer Thalia runs Trisquel 7.  I run emacs on all three, sometimes over
my small network.

A "No" entry for problem 3 really means "Not Yet"; but I have tried many
times to generate the problem.

Sometimes it is possible to see the separation of the emacs frame and the
WM window.  There can be a short period before the two coalesce
(flashing), or the two may stay separated.

Version Run     Toolkit     Display     Problem3
25.1    Mneme   GTK3     Mneme    Yes
                          GTK3     Thalia      No       This is a
surprising result,
                                                                    given
the above; it can be
                                                                    viewed
as a performance
                                                                   
improvement.
                                         Erota       Yes      Yes, but
very rare.

25.1      Thalia  No           Thalia      Yes      Yes, but rare.
                                        Mneme    Yes    
26.0.50 Thalia  No           Thalia      Yes
                                        Mneme    Yes      This shows both
short period
                                                                    and
permanent frame separation.

25.1       Erota   No           Erota        Yes
                                         Mneme    Yes
