This is expected behavior and also happens with xemacs.

emacsclient starts gnutls and emacs, gnutls to be able to talk
to emacs, so you do not open more emacs windows just add buffers
closing emacs via C-x C-c just closes emacs but not gnutls.

xemacs started with that idea by using DDE channels on Windows,
gnutls is the platform compatible and secure way.
