select-frame-by-name only selects frames that are on the current
display, so it doesn't work for frames that haven't been selected yet.

it would be a bit premature to add the busy wait again.

For select-frame-by-name specifically, we could make it check
non-visible frames as well, though I'm inclined to just mark this as
