Not in my case. I still see the same effects. I end up with the
font-lock-comment-face being cyan in the second frame, while it's
green in the first frame.
I made sure that `frame-background-mode' was set correctly, as well.
It seemed to be right.
Further to this, the face changes are made by `initialize-custom-faces'.
This is called from `custom-initialize-frame', because the global frame
properties don't match the new frame properties.
These values come from `get-custom-frame-properties', with the global
properties already being cached in `default-custom-frame-properties'.
The value in there, incidentally, has `light' as the background.
Trust the art, not the artist.
