I was a big fan of emacsclient and used it quite some time - but finally
those frequent Emacs crashes caused by it were just unbearable, so I
went back to 'normal' use of Emacs.

But maybe you are right - I should run a second Emacs instance as server
only used to popup emacsclient buffers on demand, while doing all the
serious stuff in a non-server instance of Emacs.
