Ugh, I rolled back a whole year, and it still failed.

Then I started poking around... apparently, I was picking up
/usr/bin/emacsclient somehow instead of the emacsclient I had been
building.  Something is reinserting /bin:/usr/bin in front of my PATH as
a subshell is starting.  Once I forced the proper emacsclient,
everything worked again.

So, no bug... just a stupid config problem that I still have to sort out.
