In that case, I don't understand why did Dani expect something
different from what he saw.  I see the same behavior on GNU/Linux: if
emacsclient is invoked with -n, "C-x C-c" kills Emacs.  Perhaps the
bug is that we create a new frame on Windows even though the server
receives the -current-frame parameter.  Why doesn't server.el on
Windows honor that parameter?

As for the logic behind the above code, AFAIU -n means emacsclient is
used as a way of asking Emacs to visit a file without any special
handling; in particular, "C-x #" does _not_ kill the buffer visiting
that file.  So killing the entire session upon "C-x C-c" makes sense
in this case.
