Ouch!  Which one is it?

Sorry, I miss where this emacsclient is started?  A or B?
If you start emacsclient on B and try to connect over SSH to the
server on A, which option do you provide?  (naive question because I
have always failed to do that :-))

Personally, I have 2 uses cases:

machine A: emacs --daemon
machine B: ssh -C me@A -t emacsclient -t

and I never do "ssh -CX me@A -t emacsclient -c" because the network is
usually too slow to export DISPLAY; machines A and B are usually a bit
far in my cases.

machine B: start emacs --daemon
machine B: emacsclient -c
machine B: open via TRAMP over ssh on A

And Tramp crashes time to time.

Yeah, for sure.  And as you noted too, it is difficult to know what is
the exact status of this bug. :-)

All the best,
