I suspect some sort of incomplete recompilation at work here.  All the
d.* modules should eventually be getting the socket file descriptor
from the same place, so it doesn't make sense why some would work and
others wouldn't.  But I'm seeing the same.  I'm doing a clean compilation
at the moment, but must go to work now...
