After some further experimentation, I've realized that what is happening
is that the window is being redisplayed completely off-screen.  In
general, it seems like sleep and then wake results in all my existing
windows being repositioned -- although only the first time; that is,
once repositioned in a sleep/wake cycle, a window is not further affected
by additional sleep/wake cycles.  The extent of repositioning seems to
vary depending on how the window was positioned internally.  The worst
case I'm seeing, with the emacs window getting repositioned totally off
screen, happens with a window whose initial geometry spec is "-0+0",
ie pin to the upper right corner.  I don't have an explanation for why
this happens with local X11 clients and not remote ones with similar
geometry specs.

Known problem?  Should I file a ticket?
