Some commands does not work until the splash screens times out. The []
disappears then from the mode line. (You can use M-x top-level to get out
of this state before time out.)

It seems like emacs server should remove the splash screen just as normal
input events does. But how should that be done? The function showing the
splash screen is doing a (sit-for 120).

Similar problem happen if you use emacsclient when Emacs is in
the minibuffer.  It's even worse when used on multiple displays since you
may be stuck with an active minibuffer in one display to which you currently
don't have access.

I use the patch below for that purpose.  I believe it should address your
problem as well.


Yes, it does. I think it should be checked in.
