That's the normal message. But if you do a "netstat -n | grep unix" and if you
have a list of connected UNIX domain sockets, most likely they're connected to
your X server.
I guess I was confusing SysV IPC and UNIX domain sockets. UNIX domain sockets
are local, high perf connections, though. And DGA is a shared-memory solution
for even higher performance (albeit only when running as root).

hmm... my XF86 doesn't seem to use it.
(e.g. if clients cant connect, i get error messages like
_X11TransSocket ... cant connect ... looks like it's using sockets.
