q --> the frame is simply buried

That is correct for my use-case (mostly because it preserves the frame

(setq special-display-regexps (list "^\\*"))

Split the window (into A and B).

Type `C-h f quit-window' in window A. See the new frame pop up, and the windowing system switch to it.

Press `q', the new frame is buried, focus returns to A.

Switch to B. Type `C-h f car' there. In my desktop environment (Ubuntu, Unity), the help frame stays in the background. If I explicitly switch to it (with `C-~') and press `q' in the Help window, the frame is buried again, but again, the focus returns to A.

Which mirrors the problem you've described in this report.

Maybe not deleting the frames is not the real problem, but them the problem is in some other window-related functionality.
