Thanks to Michael Pyne and Scott Wheeler for their help.  The problem was a 
misunderstanding on my part of the erase function of a FrameList.

I had thought that "due to the nature of a list this operation can be done in 
constant time, and only invalidates iterators/references to the element being 
removed" meant that when my loop next looped through, the iterator would be 
incremented and would thus be valid again.  Turns out that you have to assign 
the iterator to the return value of the erase function.
