It would be the normal case that the user, on the local machine, would
have the home directory in a NFS server, and at the same time, there
would be an Emacs on the NFS server using an authentication file on
the user's home directory? (That's the case you mentioned before, if I
understand it correctly.) If that really happens, that should be fixed
at another level...

I don't really care, as long as the user isn't mislead. But I'm not
sure the intention of the function is know whether a server is
running; more like a helper to avoid two or more Emacs to trample one
onto another, I think.

That's what Stefan said: "Another option is for server-start to try
and detect that there's already an active socket (using
server-running-p) and refuse to start."
