Sorry, I miswrote.  Indeed, C-x C-c should _not_ exit Emacs in that
case.

The "-t -n" case is an abberation; emacsclient could even signal an
error for that, because it is saying "open on this text terminal, but
don't wait", which is nonsensical.  The current behavior, of opening on
another text terminal, is a fudge---and one that doesn't work for the
Emacs daemon.  For that reason, the discrepancy you point out is not
important.
