bug#8885: 24.0.50; Temporary failure with `select-frame-by-name' on Wind

From: nyc4bos
Subject: bug#8885: 24.0.50; Temporary failure with `select-frame-by-name' on Windows
Date: Fri, 17 Jun 2011 14:18:39 -0400

On Windows, sometimes when executing:

emacsclient -n --eval "(select-frame-by-name \"address@hidden")"

I get the error:

C:\emacs-24.0.50\bin\emacsclient.exe: connected to remote socket at XX.XX.X.XXX

AllowSetForegroundWindow failed with w32 error 5: Access is denied.

This error appears to occur when Emacs is "busy" (for example when in the
middle of loading a large .el file, etc) and executing the emacsclient
`--eval' command from a Windows command prompt.

A subsequent invocation of that same emacsclient command will work just
fine (presumably Emacs is now no longer "busy") and bring the specified
Emacs frame to the forefront.
