Ok, thanks for your help, I think this would do the job, but the error
is probably in the emacsclient call, because it does not take effect on
the buffer that should be closed without querying. 

If an external program opened a new emacsclient instance for editing,
and the file opened in the editing buffer is set as the input channel
for the external program - isn't that buffer automatically the target
buffer for further emacsclient calls that evaluate elisp code via the
"-e" option?
