why can't mc open /dev/gpmctl?


 found something like this in my logs for every start of mc:
Sep  1 12:13:48 pkfp20 mc: /dev/gpmctl: No such file or directory

 I wonder why. Maybe a bug in mc? In fact, /dev/gpmctl exists:

srwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            0 Sep  1 12:16 gpmctl=

 The '=' is an indication of the file type (socket?).
 Furthermore, the strace lines look good (or not?):
socket(PF_UNIX, SOCK_STREAM, 0)         = 10
connect(10, {sin_family=AF_UNIX, path="/dev/gpmctl"}, 13) = 0
write(10, "\376\377\1\0\0\0\0\0nI\0\0\1\0\0\0", 16) = 16

 Any idea what's wrong here?
