Too bad the WM, then, because as you pointed out WM_CLIENT_MACHINE is
not defined in a way that's very useful for that purpose.  As a client
property, it could be almost anything.  Furthermore, it shouldn't be a
client property; really, this should be transparent to the client, set
in one of the shell widgets.

Anyway, this shouldn't matter to Emacs, Emacs never infloops, right? ;-)
