Oh, last week I had that situation, too.  I executed "emacsclient -c
file" on the command line and apparently nothing happened.  I'm not
exactly sure anymore but I think there were not even window decorations.
However, when I entered the Gnome 3 overview where you get a quick
preview of all your X windows, one empty emacs frame was shown.

That's different to my case.  I think I could quit the problematic
window from the Gnome 3 overview which also made emacsclient return, and
then the same invocation again resulted in a correctly drawn window.

But that occurred only exactly once so far and I have no receipe, too.
In contrast to Jon, I don't run emacs as a daemon but I have

  (unless (server-running-p)

in my ~/.emacs.
