Issuing the following expression:
   (make-frame '((user-position . t) (left . 100) (top . 100)))
creates a new frame with only a program-specified position in the
WM_NORMAL_HINT, instead of a user-specified position.

I started noticing this in the emacs 24.x series, but didn't track down
the cause of the ultimate problem until now.  The above worked in emacs 23.x.
