Ok, I found a solution simply by using another way of exiting the edit
buffer: instead of using 'C-c #' (server-edit) I can use 'C-u C-x C-c'

| It is bound to C-x C-c, <menu-bar> <file> <exit-emacs>.
| (save-buffers-kill-terminal &optional ARG)
| Offer to save each buffer, then kill the current connection.
| If the current frame has no client, kill Emacs itself.
| With prefix ARG, silently save all file-visiting buffers, then kill.

which not only exits without querying, but returns the focus to the
commandline of the calling external program, exactly what I want:

Thanks for the help.
