bug#7135: 24.0.50; Mac OS X X11: emacsclient cannot find server from remote login

When using daemon mode locally on my computer it works correctly. However, if I login (using ssh -Y) to a computer with an emacs daemon running (started with emacs -Q --daemon) and use emacsclient to connect to it emacsclient does not find the server. I get the error:
emacsclient -n -c emacsclient: can't find socket; have you started the server? To start the server in Emacs, type "M-x server-start". emacsclient: No socket or alternate editor. Please use:
but emacclient should be able to find the socket on its own. Note that this was present in 23.1 and 23.2 as well.
