If you are using Debian then each emacs flavor has its own server.
For emacs-snapshot-gtk is probably emacsclient.emacs-snapshot.
Still on Debian you can make emacs-snapshot and its client the
standard alternative for emacs by using the command
`update-alternatives'.

I think that the -e option is relatively recent, it doesn't work
with older emacsclient.
