bug#11061: 24.0.94; emacsclient -n not working

From: nyc4bos
Subject: bug#11061: 24.0.94; emacsclient -n not working
Date: Wed, 21 Mar 2012 22:28:34 -0400

After successfully starting up Emacs with `runemacs -Q' on Windows via:

D:\emacs-24.0.94\bin\runemacs.exe -Q --eval "(setq server-host
system-name)" -f server-start

I then try to invoke emacsclient from a Windows command prompt (CMD.EXE)

emacsclient -n non-existant-file.txt

I see the message:

D:\emacs-24.0.94\bin\emacsclient.exe: connected to remote socket at

However, I don't get an Emacs frame/buffer with non-existant-file.txt
nor do I get returned to the command prompt.

I have to type Ctrl-C to get back to the command prompt.

This worked in the previous version of Emacs (02/26/2012) located at:
