I can not reproduce it.  The recepie depends on many things in your 
environment, for starters, you obviously have server-start in .emacs (or some 
other startup file).  Can you reproduce this starting with Emacs -Q?

Another frame may have grabbed the mouse, but the event comes to *fp.  We 
report the position for that other frame, and set *fp to it.

The f->output_data.ns is wrong though, I will change that.
