RE: emacsclient command line use existing client

Are you setting the name of the server in your startup script? Maybe this 
option will help:

'-s server-name'
Connect to the Emacs server named server-name. The server name is given by the 
variable server-name on the Emacs server. If this option is omitted, 
emacsclient connects to the first server it finds. (This option is not 
supported on MS-Windows.)
