As far as I remember there were no frames, but I am not sure.

I booted into my F17 test partition, ran firstboot as root, and the
window frames were there and I could not reproduce the issue.

I tried to have a more realistic firstboot experience by editing
/etc/sysconfig/firstboot and removing the line RUN_FIRSTBOOT=NO, but
that did not work, it still went into the login screen. It might have
something to do with systemd. Its firstboot file has a line that says
that type is one shot. Is there a way of tricking systemd into
rerunning firstboot despite being one shot? Or maybe one shot does not
mean what I think it means?
