Pardon for my poor English, my emacs version is
  GNU Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu) of 2008-07-13 on gentoo

I have this thought because emacs server works better than emacsclient.
An example: I start emacs server in a dtach session in console, and use
emacsclient in Xorg. But I meet bug when using org-mode with
emacsclient, emacs server works well though. So if I want org-mode works
well, I have to use emacs server.

But when I run emacs server on Xorg, in this case, it becomes impossible
if I want to restart Xorg without quiting emacs. So I want to know, in
this condition, if I can start an emacsclient in console, then let it
become server(old emacs server on Xorg becomes client now), then close
the emacs(old server) on Xorg, restart Xorg, run emacsclient, let it
become server again? If can, I can restart Xorg without quiting emacs.

Don't know if this time I express myself clearly, if not, please let me
