A bit of context.
Some WMs (e.g. Mutter in Gnome Shell or Muffin) follow a new trend: they
don't unmap windows when they are iconified.

Since they are never unmapped, the windows are not mapped back when they
are deconified.  This might cause an unresponsive frame in Lucid Emacs
builds, because we redisplay when we get the MapNotify signal
(that we don't receive in those WMs).

Apparentely, GTK3 Emacs builds are not affected by this issue.

That break point is only reached while creating the frame or clicking
the menu bars.  Once the frame is created, I am not able to reach that
part by minimize/unminimize.

I have printed out `event->type` right before the switch(event->type)
I enter the break point at PropertyNotify when `event->type` equals 28.
The xev utility is printing out PropertyNotify for a bunch of different
values of `event->type`, not just for 28.

Naively, I can workaround this issue by checking for an iconified frame at
FocusIn:  this fixes this issue in both `emacs -Q` and my
custom Emacs session.

I am not sure if this is a convenient way.  We might also want to make
it more specific for checking some condition.

    Fix bug 42655
    Some WMs (e.g. mutter in Gnome Shell) don't unmap iconized windows,
    thus we won't get a MapNotify when deconifying them.
    Check if we are deconifying a window elsewhere.
    - src/xterm.c (handle_one_xevent):
    Check for window deconify when receiving a FocusIn signal.
