Description Brice Goglin 2007-03-31 10:04:52 UTC
Bug reported to the Debian BTS 6 months ago by Robert Millan, initially against gcalctool, tracked down to xtrans by Loic Minier.

The patch below makes SocketUNIXConnect return TRANS_CONNECT_FAILED instead of TRANS_TRY_CONNECT_AGAIN when the socket descriptor does not exist (for instance because a process still references an old stale socket). See the Debian report for an example.

Applied to master, with slight munging to account for the new abstract socket support.  Thanks!
