This seems like expected behaviour: there is no frame initially. Having
`emacsclient -c` work differently depending on whether or not it's the
first time it's been invoked seems wrong. If we do want to "fix" this
behaviour, then I suppose initial-frame-alist should apply to a frame in
any case where no other frame exists, ie:

  emacs --daemon
  emacsclient -c
  # initial-frame-alist applies
  emacsclient -c
  # initial-frame-alist does not apply
  # now close all of the emacs windows
  emacsclient -c
  # initial-frame-alist applies again

This behaviour should also happen if emacs was started by `emacs -nw` and
the server started there, for consistency. WDYT?
