Maybe it matters that I start emacsclient with emacsclient -a "" -nw.

You can start the daemon with emacs -q --no-site-file --no-site-lisp
--daemon (basically, turn everything off except for the splash

above switches sufficiently isolate me from my configuration.

emacs --version gives me GNU Emacs (this is probably also in
the original bug report generated by emacs.
