As a believing member of the Church of Emacs I have to step in here and
accuse you of severe abuse. ;-) Your habit is very inconvenient and
clumsy, really. The Right Thing is to put (server-start) in your .emacs
and use emacsclient as $EDITOR. There's no need to start more than one
instance of Emacs!
