   emacsclient -t from an Emacs term buffer does not work, complains
   about face problems. This can even lock up Emacs (if the recursive
   frame sets single_kboard). Update: the face problems are caused by
   bugs in term.el, not in multi-tty. The lockup is caused by
   single_kboard mode, and is not easily resolvable. The best thing to
   do is to simply refuse to create a tty frame of type `eterm'.

   (Fixed, changed emacsclient to check for TERM=eterm.  The face
   complaints seem to be caused by bugs in term.el; they are not
   related to multi-tty.)
