I use emacs pretty much exclusively in multi-tty mode, seldom creating

branch to the new emacs-23 snapshot (from a few days ago) and have
noticed some changes.

1) Start a new emacs in a tty

2) (server-start)

3) In another shell, do:
  $ emacsclient <somefilename>

4) BUG: emacs opens a new frame.  It should instead load into my
existing emacs tty.  The old multi-tty emacsclient did this correctly

This is not a bug: the behavior was chosen to better match the previous
non-multi-tty behavior.  You need to add the "-t" argument to tell
emacsclient to open a new frame in the local TTY.

But that is not what I want. I want it to open in my existing TTY. How can I achieve that? It doesn't seem possible any more.
