Hi Eric, Hi all,

What should i do to test sockets XDriver?
it's strange, i've never seen any similar bug report on sockets XDriver.

I have no clue. What about you?

And suggestions about configure option name:

	--with-fifo		fifo XDriver
	--with-ipc		ipc XDriver
	--with-socket		socket XDriver	(i think it's better)

Currently, option name is '--with-socks'. it's insonsistent.
