At some point, Unix-domain sockets were made modular. Double-check your
configuration, making sure that you enable these. Can anyone explain the
rationale behind making sockets optional? It is churning up a lot of

Perhaps the config "help" function ought to make mention of the various
critical daemons and applications which fail utterly in the absence of
Unix sockets?
