I'm not sure this is a security problem anymore. There are two bugs
open against this.
66724 is a wishlist bug, saying unix sockets should be turned on for
75064 is from Brian Almeida who was the maintainer when the unix
sockets were a security problem. He says that they are no longer,
and should be turned on.
I am going to file a bug saying tcp sockets are buggy with respect
to kernel 2.4
Let the machine do the dirty work.
