No, not the case. My machine is connected by ethernet 24-hours a day. As
I mentioned in my bug report, I can receive ntalk requests from other
hosts - I get the message on my terminal, e.g.
Message from Talk_Daemon@amasis at 17:11 ...
talk: connection requested by email@example.com.
talk: respond with: talk firstname.lastname@example.org
But talk won't let me reply, giving that error message "Couldn't bind to
control socket". Likewise if I try to initiate a connection.
