I think you need to clean d.mon sources and recompile (having run
./configure --with-socks).  Sounds like the conditional compile did not
occur (start-up arguments have changed since SWITCHER still handles
nlev, but doesn't need FIFO arguments -- I didn't want to spend alot of
time figuring out if an argument should be interpreted as a FIFO name or
a number of color levels.  I guess it wouldn't have been too hard...).

I have no opinion.  "sock" is a common shorthand for socket.  If you
think --with-socket is clearer, then changing it is fine with me.
