I expected that.

I did.  If you now ask yourself why I wanted you to try that, then it's
because I wanted to try with the more simple approaches first.  BTW, you
did check all four of Juanma's scenarios, that is also the ones without
the (sit-for 0)?

This is indeed a strange thing.  Juanma, do we usually ignore this?

It is yet another mysterious detail.  Please post now your entire
.emacs.desktop file here, that is the one that you use to produce the
bad frame in the new session.  I'll then try to tell you what to remove
from that file in order to narrow down the possible culprits.

And thanks for bearing with me, martin
