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
screen). If I do that, it reproduces nicely. I'm assuming that the
above switches sufficiently isolate me from my configuration.
emacs --version gives me GNU Emacs 22.214.171.124 (this is probably also in
the original bug report generated by emacs.
