It's more complicated than that. But the problem has already been
debugged and fixed in the emacs development trunk:
Unfortunately, the fix won't make it into emacs-24.3.

I'll defer to Marco on this.

My reading of the documentation is that this is to be expected:
$ man emacsclient
returns immediately without waiting for you to "finish"
the buffer in Emacs.
Is the behavior you described specific to Cygwin?
I use "emacsclient -c" and it works fine. Or you can use "emacsclient
-a '' -c" if you're not sure there will always be an emacs server running.
