I can reproduce this with Gnome's default window manager, Metacity.
With the Blackbox window manager, it works fine.  My suspicion is that
Metacity is trying to be clever, and failing.

(For reference: the original bug report is that if you move the frame
(X window) with the mouse, then try to use set-frame-position to move
it elsewhere, Metacity immediately moves the frame back to the first
