I just tested on xfce4-terminal with ImageMagick 6.7.7, it worked as
expected for me: the -frame switch did include the wm frame in the
screenshot and not using it left it out.

It shouldn't be much a problem as long as it works, unless you want to
figure it out for the sake of solving the issue. Just in case, you
might want to use the switch, even if both work for you.

If however you *don't* want the frame, try to troubleshoot the issue
by, for example, checking if you're using aliases that would include
the -frame switch, or use the command as a new user to see if the
problem persists.

You need the keybindings depending on *your* needs. Try each of them,
then keep/remove the ones you need/don't need.
