Thanks for the hint.  The attached patch checks the value of
f->size_hint_flags in order to decide if the f->left_pos and
f->top_pos values should be used.

With the patch applied stuff like (make-frame '((top . 10))) works
now.  The only drawback is that the value of f->size_hint_flags does
not allow to determine if both top and left positions or only one is
set.  That means in case of the make-frame call above, for example,
the frame is horizontally positioned at the left edge of the desktop,
as the default value for f->left_pos is 0.

Here is a change log entry:

        * w32fns.c (w32_createwindow): Honour left and top positions if
        supplied explicitely.
