[GRASSLIST:2838] d.mon can't bind to socket

Hi GRASS people,

I think this problem has been reported before but I haven't seen a
response.  (Maybe I'm not looking in the right place.)

I've just installed grass5.0pre2 under MacOS X using XFree86 4.1 with
XDarwin 1.0.6.  All goes well until I try and start a monitor.  Then I
get the following:

GRASS 5.0.0pre2 > d.mon start=x0
using default visual which is TrueColor
ncolors: 16777216
Can't bind to socket; already in use?
No socket to connect to for monitor <x0>.
Problem selecting x0.  Will try once more
No socket to connect to for monitor <x0>.

Thus I'm prevented from starting any monitors.  Has anyone any
experience with this problem?
