Also, some additional info would help:

What OS?
What sort of frame appears?
Are you sure the errant frame wasn't there before you added a page?
Is it dependent on having a starting document with content? Do you see
this with a blank page document?
How do you add a page? Copy or Insert?
Are these pages with automatic creation of frames?

I've just tried this with 1.4.2svn and 1.4.1 (fedora 17) and can't show
any such thing, either starting with a blank page or one with a text
frame on it.
