I cannot use C-x o to switch to another frame while in a term frame. Here are the steps to replicate the issue:

  1. press C-x 2 to split frame
  2. press C-x o to change focus to new frame
  3. press M-x term RETURN RETURN to switch new frame to term window with bash
  4. press C-x o to return to previous frame

*Messages* says C-x o is undefined

C-c char -- "This is equivalent to C-x char in normal Emacs. For example, C-c o invokes the global binding of C-x o, which is normally other-window."
