** libxpm is loaded too soon
Since the multi-tty merge, libxpm is loaded before the init files because
of changes in toolbar setup; that prevents using image-library-alist in
.emacs to select the desired XPM library.  Reported by Takashi Hiromatsu.

** multi-tty does not work correctly.
If the server is started from a tty frame and emacsclient creates an
X11 frame, the tty frame gets confused, it thinks it is an X11 frame
when trying to do a C-z.  This worked with server.el version 1.136, it
broke after that.
