Sorry for multiple posts.  

I am banging my head over multiple accounts, posting styles and
X-Message-SMTP-Method etc.  Gnus is awesome only because I can edit my
mail within Emacs.  Otherwise it's just ...

Works fine on Debian/Squeeze x86 and Emacs Bzr trunk.  

The package I installed is gnutls-doc.  I can see the image just fine,
if I do

    (info "(gnutls) TLS layers")

The header says this:

My motivation for the post was the thread in help list and a recurrent
confusion between a frame and a window.

It is easier to show 
 - a window
  - a frame
  - a minibuffer
  - a header line
  - a mode line 

with a single shot rather than explain it in Glossary.

Btw, looking at Glossary for Window, I am surprised that I don't know
what (q.v.) stands for.  The Emacs crowd *was* scholarly and academic
and it is to some extent even so today.  But using things like q.v. etc
and assuming that it will be understood by *lay* crowd is a bit too much
for the asking...

| Window
|      Emacs divides a frame (q.v.) into one or more windows, each of
|      which can display the contents of one buffer (q.v.) at any time.
|      *Note Screen::, for basic information on how Emacs uses the screen.
|      *Note Windows::, for commands to control the use of windows.  Some
|      other editors use the term "window" for what we call a `frame'
|      (q.v.) in Emacs.
