Thanks. OK. I found 'dnd-open-file-other-window' It works as expected *if* 
the currently open frame contains at least one file buffer. But, if it 
only contains, say, a *scratch* buffer and a dired buffer, then it opens 
the file as a new tab in the existing frame.  It would be nice to have it 
open in a new frame regardless, or at least if any buffer visiting a file 
or a directory is open.
