make-frame function on ver. 24

Backtrace shows an error at this position in my .emacs when used with
24.2 but not with 23.3:

(setq initial-frame-alist '((name . "arial") (top . 370) (left . 1)
(width . 205) (height . 18)))

;; this frame is created near beginning of .emacs but not named "arial."
Instead, the frame title ends up being whatever the buffername is.
Later, custom-set-faces makes the default font arial unicode.


(make-frame '((name . "courier")
           (top . 1) (left . 1) (width . 123) (height . 18)
           (visibility . icon) ; nil or icon

(select-frame-by-name "courier")
(set-frame-font "-outline-Courier

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "There is no frame named `courier'")
  signal(error ("There is no frame named `courier'"))
  error("There is no frame named `%s'" "courier")

.....  Reading at buffer position 26164 (^ under paren)

Does any of you know what might be causing this? Up to this point it
looks like the .emacs has been read without a problem.
