This syntax is not understood by my xhost (1.0.2) and I have reason to
believe that it is not possible to specify a display like that; in the
'bugs' section, it says:

 "You can’t specify a display on the command line because -display  is  a
  valid  command  line  argument  (indicating that you want to remove the
  machine named ‘‘display’’ from the access list)."

Since I have no problem getting remote windows to open on my laptop's
display (xterm&, emacs&, etc) with the same remote client, I feel like
the issue is that emacsclient -c is doing something different in
redirecting the display. Do you folk think a post to emacs-devel would
be useful? Do you know who spearheaded the emacsclient -c development?

Thanks for your help,
