This shouldn't be necessary anymore, I used to use a similar construct,
but there's simpler.
If you run emacsclient with `-a=""' or `--alternate-editor=""', it tries
to connect to the server first, and if it fails to connect, starts
it. This way, you never end up trying to start several daemons at once
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
alias emacs='emacsclient -a="" -nw'
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
and similarly in your .screenrc:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
screen -t EMACS       4 emacsclient -a="" -nw
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
