That second form results in a "Cannot switch buffers in a dedicated window"
error, because occur-mode-goto-occurrence and occur-mode-mouse-goto call
pop-to-buffer.  The first form works because compilation-goto-locus calls
switch-to-buffer-other-frame (instead of switch-to-buffer) when

      (and (window-dedicated-p (selected-window))
           (eq (selected-window) (frame-root-window)))

so I think the occur-mode-* functions need to be modified to handle that
