Both when I start (with many arguments) a multi-tty Emacs in an RXVT
shell with -nw and when I start it in X (also with many arguments,
mostly the same), if I then run emacsclient -t in another RXVT shell,
and then turn on xterm-mouse-mode, the mouse works fine in both the
original instance and in the client.

(Not using the vcursor patch.)

When I start the multi-tty Emacs instance in an RXVT, the order in
which I start xterm-mouse-mode and emacsclient -t does not matter.

But when I start the multi-tty Emacs instance in X, the order does
matter.  When I start xterm-mouse-mode in the original in X before
starting emacsclient -t, then mouse mode fails in the client, although
when I invoke xterm-mouse-mode in the client, I receive the message
about disabling the mouse mode.  If I then invoke it again in the
client, mouse mode succeeds.
