This is a bug.  Please report it as Drew suggested.

This is probably due to the fact that you called `my-load-frame' twice
in a row and you were already at the end of the buffer in the second
call so there was nothing more to read.

Partly, yes.

Please comment out the two code lines

                (unless (window-parameter window 'clone-of)
                  ;; Make a clone-of parameter.
                  (setq list (cons (cons 'clone-of window) list)))

in the function `window--state-get-1' and recompile window.el (possibly
twice - I'm somewhat confused by Stefan's backquote syntax here).  These
lines are currently for internal use only, their absence should not harm
you.  If you still see problems, please tell me.

Thanks, martin
