Then, it is not really necessary to connect with 1's server. Just the
fact that there's a local Emacs with the same PID that the one saved
in the authentication file, and acting as a local server, should be
reason enough for 2 to refuse overwriting the auth file.

No, I've never claimed that. If server-start signals an error when
`server-running-p' returns non-nil, the auth file won't be clobbered.
(At least, in normal configurations; I'm not sure that is impossible
for some combination of non local servers, remote home user
directories, etc. That's left as an exercise for the people who
usually works in such environments ;-)

But we're trying to fix the easy, common problem first, aren't we?
