That sounds like you might be starting 2 servers.

Not sure what you mean there.  What line in .emacs? Does it start a
second server in addition to the one started when OS starts?

In your script you need to say which emacsclient server to attache to.

something like `emacsclient -s SERVERNAME -c' (or what ever other flags
you use)

Will only attache to SERVERNAME
