This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

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

(modify-frame-parameters nil '((top . 100) (left . 200)))

I entered above elisp code into the *scratch* window and ran eval-last-sexp on it. The frame was positioned at (0, 0) to start.

The frame appears to jump briefly to (100, 200) and immediately jumps
back to (0, 0).

The same command run under xemacs-21.5-b5 works correctly, leaving the frame at (100, 200)
