I think Emacs should be able to coexist and behave nicely with FAT32 - don't

IIUC how Windows on FAT32 works, using emacsserver on such a system
means that any process running on this machine (from your own user or
any other user) can control your Emacs session.

Yes. The security feature of emacsclient should probably be abstracted so that appropriate methods for the platform can be used. Then on Windows (NT) we could use Security Descriptors directly without relying on the filesystem to be secure. Windows 95/98/ME would require a different solution, but I don't think it is worth expending any more effort than the Yes/No dialog that Eli suggests.
