Thanks all, I apologize for having been dense. I thought the whole
time that the behaviour I was seeing was to be expected. The first
time I invoke emacsclient it opens in a terminal, not in a
window-manager-managed GUI-frame. I have to manually create a
GUI-frame using --create-frame. Subsequent invocations of the client
does not need --create-frame however.

The daemon does not emit any error messages, and there seems to be no
problem with my DISPLAY settings.  Removing my clunky  ~/.emacs does
not help. Invoking the emacs daemon with -Q and/or -D does not help
either. Will investigate a bit more (not sure how though) and possibly
file a bug report.

Thanks again all!

Best regards
