In fact -- if I recall correctly -- it's actually not that hard to fix,
and in fact at one point Gerd changed it to delay mapping the frame
until it had finished initializing.  However that changed was removed
because there were complaints that it would not do the right thing for
people who did certain things in their .emacs file (I don't remember
exactly what; I think it was prompting for input, or displaying a
message or something like that).

Personally I also hate the current behavior, and don't think that
supporting uncommon behavior in .emacs files justifies it.  Perhaps it
could be made contingent on a variable.

Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it
has to be us.  -- Jerry Garcia
