Emacs fails to create frame at boot of OSX

I am running Emacs [GNU Emacs 24.4.1 (x86_64-apple-darwin13.4.0, NS
apple-appkit-1265.21) of 2014-10-21 on] on OSX
[OS X 10.9.5 (13F34)].

When I boot my iMAC all apps that were running at the previous shutdown
are restarted by OSX. So Emacs is also started, but fails to create its
frame. It just hangs without frame. I have to kill it and restart
it. That always succeeds.

This problem is not limited to Emacs 24.4 nor to OSX 10.9.5. It also
occurred from time to time with earlier versions of Emacs and/or
OSX. But now it happens at every boot. I always have to kill Emacs and
restart it.

I realise that this is the kind of hickup that is very hard to
diagnose. I just wonder whether I am the only user suffering from
this. I hope others have been there, and somehow solved it so that I
could benefit from their experience.
