Thanks, I think we've finally nailed this sucker.

It is certainly for the right frame, because the code that sets the
"garbaged" flag is here:

  if (FRAME_TERMCAP_P (XFRAME (frame)) || FRAME_MSDOS_P (XFRAME (frame)))
    {
      if (FRAMEP (FRAME_TTY (XFRAME (frame))->top_frame))
        /* Mark previously displayed frame as now obscured.  */
        SET_FRAME_VISIBLE (XFRAME (FRAME_TTY (XFRAME (frame))->top_frame), 2);
      SET_FRAME_VISIBLE (XFRAME (frame), 1);  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
      FRAME_TTY (XFRAME (frame))->top_frame = frame;
    }

As you can see from the condition for this block, it is only run for
TTY (a.k.a. "termcap") frames.

I think the problem here is that the code sets the "garbaged" flag
even if the "top frame" of the TTY did not change at all.

Can you try the patch below?  Please try it both with a single TTY
frame on the xterm (in addition to a GUI frame), like what you did
until now, and also with several TTY frames on the same xterm (you can
create additional frames by "C-x 5" commands).

If this gives good results, I will install it.  Thanks.
