Two frames always imply a fight: the window manager will try to find
places for them and decide on how to focus them.  Getting a separate
window tamed is the matter of C-x 0 or C-x 1.  In contrast, C-x 5 0 or
C-x 5 1 will leave one with a window configuration that might be worse
than if just one frame would have been placed.

With my personal geometry settings, not more than one Emacs frame per
workspace is really usable.
