That's because both selecting a window and changing its buffer sets
windows_or_buffers_changed via redisplay_other_windows.

What separate frame?

That might be a good change anyway, but the more general problem of
having an easily triggered infloop in redisplay_internal remains, and
we should fix that, IMO.

Let me turn the table and ask: why do we need to retry redisplay when
some function called from run_window_change_functions does something
that requires redisplay?  Why not leave that to the next redisplay
