new frames ignore default frame positions

Subject: new frames ignore default frame positions

(On OS X 10.3, CVS checkout)

It looks like new frames, for example created by
 find-file-other-frame, ignore the position defaults
(top, left) set in default-frame-alist.

This might be related to a similar oddity: If I do

 (switch-to-buffer-other-frame (generate-new-buffer "new document"))

The new frame pops up at one position, but is then moved to
the left of the screen.  Top/Left of  initial-frame-alist and
default-frame-alist are completely ignored.

In my .emacs, I have

(setq initial-frame-alist
    (top               . 180)
     (left              . 80)

(setq default-frame-alist
      '((cursor-color . "blue")
        (foreground-color . "black")
        (background-color . "white")
       (top . 180 ) (left . 80)
       (width . 80) (height . 40)))
