That gives the idea of killing multiple emacsclients at the same time...

This looks reproducible:

Xnest :1
xterm -display :1
in that xterm:
emacs -Q --deamon

from the :0 display create 2 more xterms in Xnest:
xterm -display :1
xterm -display :1

and in each of the do 
emacsclient -t 
C-z


in another xterm on :0 do:
emacsclient -t 
C-z

at this point we should have 3 suspended emacsclients, 2 in Xnest, one
in the main display.

Kill Xnest

Now emacs is stuck. VframeList looks like it's empty.
