While testing this change, I discovered one strange old bug (I can
reproduce it at least in the last year's CVS check-out, but not
in CVS check-out of two years ago).  man fails in woman's frame.
Test case:

M-x man RET man RET      ;; creates a new window in the same frame
M-x woman RET man RET    ;; creates a new dedicated frame
q                        ;; deletes the buffer, but leaves the frame
M-x man RET man RET

the last command typed in the woman's dedicated frame fails with the error
signalled by string-match:

  Man-translate-references: Wrong type argument: arrayp, nil
