I haven't tried the emacsclient stuff yet, but I always run gnu screen,
then emacs within that. If you lose the connection, you'll just get
'detached' by gnu screen; no hung processes at all. And you can always
reattach with 'screen -r'

I wouldn't be without gnu screen now. And my .screenrc file is almost as
important to me as .emacs ;)
