I don't know for sockets, but you can't do this with named pipes as used by init, xconsole and gpm for example. You can only create a new named pipe with the same filename. This means you would have to restart all the processes using the named pipe. I don't see a way of doing this without risking race conditions and other annoying things like your X server getting killed because it uses gpmdata. Cheers, Peter (p2).
