emacs -Q if you
M-x server-start, then open a buffer, then back in the terminal
emacsclient --tty SOMEOTHERFILE a new frame will be created, but it will initially show the buffer shown in the original frame prior to displaying the file/buffer specified on the command line.
I know this is a visual nit, but it's distracting. Is there a way to prevent this from happening? Either by showing the scratch buffer initially or loading straight in to the file specified at the command line?
