On second thought, perhaps you expected "emacsclient -nw" to be paired
with "emacs -nw", i.e. open a frame in the already running text mode
session?  If so, that's not what "emacsclient -nw" does: it is
supposed to open a _new_ tty frame on the _current_ terminal.  If you
want to open a new frame in an _existing_ "emacs -nw" session, then
drop the "-nw" part from the emacsclient command line.
