Often I find my Emacs frozen and I end up resolving it by exiting emacsclient.

Can emacsclient somehow block the main Emacs from input?

  • emacsclient is just an emacs launcher

  • Right, and can it somehow freeze the other Emacs that it's connecting to? Commented May 7 at 12:20
  • This happens so often now. My GUI Emacs is not responding to anything, no matter what I throw at it. If I kill the emacsclient that I have in GNU Screen, then it unlocks and I can use it. Commented Jun 18 at 18:47
