As I said in the first post, I expect the behavior documented in node
"(emacs)emacsclient Options":

    If you type `C-x C-c' (`save-buffers-kill-terminal') in an Emacs
 frame created with `emacsclient', via the `-c' or `-t' options, Emacs
 deletes the frame instead of killing the Emacs process itself.  [...]

If you used also -t or -c, then the the bug is also on that platform
(according to the manual).

According to the manual, "-n" just means "no wait for the server to
return control":

       Let `emacsclient' exit immediately, instead of waiting until all
       server buffers are finished.  You can take as long as you like to
       edit the server buffers within Emacs, and they are _not_ killed
       when you type `C-x #' in them.

I don't see how that interpretation can be deducted from the current manual.

Besides, as I said in the first post, the observed behavior also
varies when you call emacsclient with and without a filename.
