In a situation like this does it help to do either

  C-x 5 2 to make a new frame and delete the old one, or

  C-x 1 to display only one window?

If either of this makes the messages disappear, the bug could be in the
window handling code.

What is this key sequence supposed to do?

How many windows were on this Emacs frame at that time?

I don't know.  Looking at the code of `report-emacs-bug' I don't see a
call to remove a window but maybe I'm missing something.
