and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Don't know if this is a known issue or not...

I'm running Emacs version 21.3.1 and came across the following problem:

I wanted to use the emacsclient command to open multiple files in a single 
emacs session.

To do so I have the line


added to my .emacs file.

Then I type...

> emacsclient --no-wait myfilename

This works fine because there's at /tmp/esrv2800... file that gets created. As 
long as that exists everything's happy.

Now let's say I run a second instance of emacs. This still works fine and now 
any "emacsclient" commands I issue goes to the new editor.

However if I close instance #2 it removes the /tmp/esrv... magic file so my 
emacsclient commands no longer work despite the fact that I still have emacs 
instance #1 open.

Seems like the file (/tmp/esrv...) could have a reference count the prevents it 
from being deleted as long as there's an open emacs instance. (or maybe there's 
better way, that's just a suggestion.
