Why are you (or the Gentoo package) running with `--alternate-editor='
if a daemon was already started?

Because the user may not be sure if a daemon is running, and may want to
start it just in case? Which fails with the patch applied.

Thinking out loud, would systemd socket activation help here, or would that 
simply move the issue elsewhere?
