Here's the idea:
- standard Debian testing Gnome setup.
- killall metacity.
- start good'ol ctwm, emacs, and xterm.
- add a zest of xmodmap+xresources.

I never use gnome-terminal because good'ol xterm works just fine, thank you.

Yes, it's there.  `dpkg' tells me it's package version 2.30.2-3.

So, my random pick of gnome-terminal for testing was a good one, great.

Hmm... I'm indeed having some trouble replicating the problem from
"emacs -Q".  I rarely if ever delete frames or exit Emacs, so I didn't
notice it, but it seems to only appear when I send an email/news message
with Gnus (these are placed in dedicated frames).
OK, I'll try and come up with a self-contained test case.  Thanks,
