No, initial frame is not a stub.  It is a fully functional TTY frame.
(And what is the difference between a "stub" frame and a "real" frame
anyway?)  It is deleted in the GUI session because it is "no longer
needed" after the first GUI frame is created.

I took that last part in quotes, because it sounds like baggage from
the past, when TTY and GUI frames couldn't co-exist in the same
session.  So we could, for instance, keep that frame around, and reuse
it when the first TTY frame is requested.  Not sure this is wise or
useful, though.

But perhaps we should step back a notch and discuss the original
problem.  What problem(s) did you want to solve, exactly?
