I didn't miss those and I have no explanation why his minibuffer doesn't
show up  Do you?

And we closed them both.

IIUC we have three issues here:

(1) Since we always used some sort of waiting, some code that relied on
its presence but (IMHO) should never have been written that way, was
executed as intended by the author.  Bug#25521 was such a case.  I think
this issue should be fixed by supplying the entire available information
(like the expected frame size or the asked for name) at the time the
frame is created.  If anything changes later, we'll inform about that
change in due time.

(2) Apparently sometimes the window system / manager does not inform us
that a frame has become visible although the frame apparently has become
visible.  If I'm not mistaken that's what Alexander sees (or is not able
to see).

(3) Sometimes for a frame it may take forever to become visible.  That's
the case you cited earlier with a frame that is expected to pop up on a
different workspace.

In some sense all of these are problems we have not completely resolved
for at least one sort of timeout a user chooses.
