    You tried to change them to 50; that doesn't make sense for what you
    want to accomplish.  Try to change border-width to zero instead.

Sure, but I wanted to see what it did. My next try was to change the border

I cannot change the border-width to zero, BTW. I get the same error:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Cannot change the border width of a
  modify-frame-parameters(#<frame address@hidden 0x1447e00>
((border-width . 0)))
  eval((modify-frame-parameters (selected-frame) (quote (...))))
  eval-expression((modify-frame-parameters (selected-frame) (quote (...)))

Oddly enough, I can change border-width to 2 (but I see no difference), but
not to 1, 3, 4, or 5 (I get the same error). Perhaps it does have something
to do with the frame font size, or perhaps 2 is the only permitted value,
but in those cases the error message is not the right one.

You can change the internal-border-width to 0 (no hang this time), but that
has no effect on the extra pixels.

BTW, changing the border-color has no effect on Windows, that I can see.
That has always been the case, I believe. Either I've never seen a frame
border or it is the same as the window-manager frame border and cannot be
changed from Emacs - at least that's my impression.
