hmm, -Q works, I must have to find what's wrong with my config.

What I do is, run emacs in console, then M-x server-start.
Startx, run emacsclient -c, then M-x server-start, it says:
        The current server still has clients; delete them? (y or n) 
I answser y, then the frame is killed. But I don't want to kill this
frame, I want server-start from it, so it becomes a server.

Thank you for your patient very much!
