That's a bit strange.  emacsclient foo.txt should have always found
foo.txt in an existing frame (possibly on another workspace).  If you
want to use a new frame, you have to provide the -c, --create-frame
option.  Or to use a new terminal frame, use -t, --tty.

I have

  EDITOR=emacsclient -t


  VISUAL=emacsclient -c
