Every few months, when I try to create a new (X window system) frame
using "emacsclient -c", I get a useless frame.  That is, I can see the
region where the menubar should be, and the background color looks
right, but the gutters, scrollbar, and modeline are all missing, and the
frame does not respond to keyboard or mouse events.  The next
"emacsclient -c" works fine.

The thread starting at
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2016-02/msg00891.html has
the troubleshooting information that I have collected so far, plus some
discussion about what might be causing the observed symptoms and what to
do next for troubleshooting.
