[h-e-w] Why can I not use emacsclient for more than one file edit ?

Im using emacs version on Windows 7 .  I have updated my .emacs
file to  the following  the redefine of server-ensure-safe-dir is to get rid
of the "not a secure directory" error. 

(require 'server)
(defun server-ensure-safe-dir (dir) 
   "Server function hack" t )

In a command window, I type "emacsclient  <file>"  and the existing emacs (
i.e. the server) window will change to allow editing of the file named
<file> if I open a second command window and run the same command but for a
different file  nothing happens. Emacsclient does not return either; so it
must be connecting. If I close the first buffer ( before or after running
the second command) using the C-x #  key combo as suggested by
documentation,I do not see the second file. I have no errors but any further
use of the server only results in emacsclient being hung up waiting for the
server to return a finish signal.
I cant believe the server cannot handle more than one connection at a time 
or only one connection period as I am seeing. What am I doing wrong. 

Thanks Carl
