[h-e-w] Emacs as external editor for Thunderbird - problem with gnuclien

I have found the Thunderbird External Editor Extension on and it works fine if I set
the editor to emacs. 

However, I would like it use gnuclientw instead, so it would open an
existing emacs frame. This also works; I can click it in thunderbird
and get a mail-buffer in my emacs, but for some reason emacs does not
find out that it has been started by an external editor.
gnuserv-edit gives:
if: (gnuserv-edit): Use only on buffers created by external programs.

and gnuserv-done then doesn't work.

What am I doing wrong?
