Subject: emacs23-bin-common: emacsclient launches emacs with the wrong arg0
Date: Fri, 15 Mar 2013 01:11:10 +0100
Package: emacs23-bin-common
Version: 23.4+1-4
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I have $EDITOR set to "/usr/bin/emacsclient -c". When there is no
(server) emacs running, emacsclient starts a new emacs, but places
"-c" as the arg0 (instead of the emacs binary name).

Example emacsclient invocation:
sh -c /usr/bin/emacsclient -c +6 '/tmp/reportbug-emacs23-bin-common-20130315-13844-cG7qgW'

Results in:
-c +6 /tmp/reportbug-emacs23-bin-common-20130315-13844-cG7qgW

I consider this important because it hides which process is actually
running.

Version info:
% /usr/bin/emacsclient --version
emacsclient 23.4

Env vars:
ALTERNATE_EDITOR=emacs
EDITOR=/usr/bin/emacsclient -c

The same bug manifests itself in the emacs24 packages from sid.

Thanks,
Christian
