I think that's only true if socket wrapper is mapping a TCP socket to a
Unix domain socket.

I'm not saying that socket wrapper is causing the issue.  I'm
suggesting that socket wrapper could be used to solve it, probably by
having an option to map all Unix domain sockets to a short path (e.g.
via a hash).  I don't think this would hide real bugs, I think it would
just hide deficiencies in our test environment. ;-)

That's true too!

peace & happiness,
