Emacs 21.2 Frame Parameters

The more I dig into this the more I believe it is a bug.

I recently upgraded from Redhat Linux 7.2 to 7.3. As part of the update, my emacs changed from version 20.7 to Emacs 21.2 and I now find that several of my frame customizations don't work. In particular, the frame-parameters "top" and "left" get ignored.

For example:
In version 20.7 I used the following command to create a second frame positioned all the way to the right of my screen:
       (make-frame '((height . 70) (width .  93) (top . 0) (left .  581)))

under emacs 21.2.1 the command above produces a frame of height=70 and width=93 but the window is positioned at top=0 and left=0. I get an identical result when I try to set "top" or "left" values for the variables "special-display-frame-alist" and "default-frame-alist"

Something changed between the releases and, as of yet, I am unable to work around the problem.
