I'm not convinced this is the root of the problem.  For one, by default
there is no `font' parameter in default-frame-alist, so as long as we
leave it that way, it should not affect face settings.  The code in
face-set-after-frame-default should apply the defface-spec to every
new frame, so we shouldn't need any entry in default-frame-alist for it
to apply to new frames.  The face-set-after-frame-default used to skip
`default', so that was an important reason for the bug#47.  I've fixed
this part, but there are other weird things going on (I have some other
weird problems here where X resources are obeyed even after I remove
the calls to `make-face-x-resource-internal').

I think we need to write down every step of how faces are initialized
for each frame (then lament the fact faces are the same on all frames in
99.99% of the cases), then how frame-parameters are treated, and then
how they affect each other.
