By fixing the other problem, the one where "emacs --daemon" returns
before the server is ready.  Basically, all the .emacs should be read as
if we're running with "--batch", and only at the end should we detach
from the terminal.

As for desktop-read, it will probably need to be reworked to do the
right thing with --daemon.
