Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

On a system with /C-x key redefined from a prefix to a
command key,
eg. for wordstar key map, when enabling emacs server
with the command 
the user will receive a 

C-x # uses invalid prefix


The following change to server.el to fixes the bug:

;(global-set-key "\C-x#" 'server-edit)
(define-key ctl-x-map "#" 'server-edit)
