Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:


I am running under CDE on Solaris. My desk has two CRT's that are
configured to work as one screen. I.e., I ran /opt/SUNWut/bin/utxconfig -x on
to enable this configuration.

If I run ediff, emacs hangs so thoroughly that I have to kill it from
a different terminal.

If I run with the two CRT's configured to work independently (/opt/SUNWut/bin/utxconfig -x off), then it works properly.

The command make-frame-command (C-x 5 2) works properly with either
configuration.
I traced the problem down to the function x-create-frame-with-faces in
faces.el. when called from ediff, the call to x-create-frame never
returns.

I have a workaround. I added the following to the end of my .emacs. Apparently forcing the initial position of the frame to be on-screen
makes x-create-frame happy.

;; On a wide, two-headed screen, the default values cause ;; make-frame (x-create-frame) to hang.
(require 'ediff)
(setq ediff-control-frame-parameters
 (append '( (top . 100) (left . 100))
         ediff-control-frame-parameters))
