a quick update on the frames issue:

i have checked out emacs as an x11 build on mac osx. and guess what,
`frame-parameters' and all the things about frame-positions work fine! so
its definitely an aqua/carbon issue.

i'm eager to look in the source, where the problem comes from but don't know
where to start... is there any documentation about the structure of the c
source of emacs and its platform related stuff available?

cheers, leo
