Package: emacs24
Version: 24.5+1-6+b1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I'm running emacs server and everything works fine as long as I use
"emacsclient -c ...".  However, if I do not use the "-c" option, I
consistently get the following:

  domi@barcelona:~> touch /tmp/test.txt
  domi@barcelona:~> emacsclient /tmp/test.txt
  Waiting for Emacs...
  *ERROR*: Wrong type argument: processp, nowait

Strangely, when I kill my emacs server process and restart it,
everything does work for a while, but not very long.  The problem is
very annoying because it means I can't easily commit using magit since
it uses emacsclient for editing the commit message. In case it's
relevant: I'm running spacemacs.  Also: all this seems very similar to
a bug discussed in the emacs-devel list in 2007, but that is supposed
to have been solved?

Thanks for taking a look,
Dominique Devriese
