24.0.90; Closing an emacsclient frame always kills daemon

I open emacs with the following:

emacsclient --alternate-editor="" -c ~/.bashrc

According to the manual, it creates a daemon if none is running and
then creates a client by connecting to this daemon. I confirm this
behavior by looking at the running processes: I have one process for
emacsclient and one for emacs --daemon. However, as soon as I close
the last running emacsclient (with C-x C-c or C-x #), the daemon is
also terminated. Some more information:

- Running with gdb prints a "Program existed normally".

- I can reproduce on sources downloaded from bzr, on debian unstable
(http://emacs.naquadah.org/unstable/) and ubuntu natty
(https://launchpad.net/~cassou/+archive/emacs). The directives used
for compilation are shown below. (note that I used -O0 and

- Launching emacsclient with -nw does *not* exhibit the problem.

- Compiling with --with-x-toolkit=gtk does exhibit the same problem.

- I also compiled with --with-x-toolkit=lucid, but I must have made
something wrong as I also got the "Warning: due to a long standing
Gtk+ bug..." error message when I started emacs.

- I was not able to run emacs with -q option as emacsclient does not
accept it nor does it allow to pass it to the daemon to be created. I,
however, renamed my .emacs.d directory so that it didn't get loaded (
I have no ~/.emacs file)

Here are the compilation instructions I used with the sources from
bzr. They are very exactly the same as the one used by Julien Danjou
to create http://emacs.naquadah.org/unstable except for the -O0 that I
used to see if the problem persisted (and it does).
