That's fine with me, but if you read bug#17693, you will see that the
original report there explicitly describes a situation where GUI
frames were created by restoring desktop in a -nw session.  I thought
this was a feature, but if you say it's a bug, fixing it will fulfill
user expectations.

Because the original code had worse problems, and we didn't know how
to fix it better than that.
