Hi

As suggested per the online Emacs manual [1], I have set the $EDITOR
variable to emacsclient with the -a argument.

[2009-04-19 16:17:37] address@hidden:~/examples/examples-current
  $ echo $EDITOR
emacsclient --alternate-editor emacs +%d %s

When $EDITOR gets called from scripts, such as "reportbug" on Debian,
and Emacs is not started yet, a new instance of Emacs will be launched
(as can be expected).  However, I cannot close back the buffer with
C-x #.  Pressing this shortcut so will result in a message "No server
editing buffers exist".

I can still save the file with C-x C-s and then close the buffer with
C-x k, because "reportbug" uses a file in /tmp, but I would like to
see that the classic way of closing a buffer from an external call is
retained (i.e. C-x #).

When Emacs is already started, emacsclient opens correctly and I can
close the buffer with C-#.
