1. On machine A, in a graphical environment, start Emacs as usual.
2. Start the server (M-x server-start).
3. From another machine B, ssh into A.
4. Open a terminal frame with emacsclient -t.
5. Start a shell with M-x shell.
6. From within the shell, run emacsclient -c.
7. Emacs will open a new graphical frame on A.  There's no way to
    interact with that frame from B.

In step 6, the Emacs client should detect that it's being run from
inside Emacs, and should replace the current frame on B with a temporary
client frame instead of opening a new frame on A.
