Well, frameset restoration is a new feature, which does not interfere with what you did before. It just does not do what you want in a new situation (you could always set desktop-restore-frames to nil and not lose any old functionality). I don't mean that your use case is not valid or relevant, only that it is hardly surprising that it doesn't work out of the box ;-)

I tried to preserve anything that I could imagine being even remotely useful, or being told so. Obviously, there's room for improvement.

I'll look into it.
