This is not viable on POSIX systems for which CM uses Unix Domain
Sockets and filesystems like FAT and NTFS that don't support Unix
Domain Sockets. Addressing this is the purpose of the patch: to move
the socket back to /tmp, where it belongs, in a way that won't conflict
with different configuration directories.

That's the rub: trapping the 0.01% and doing something useful about it
instead of letting CM segfault and take who knows what with it. I'll
leave that to someone who knows how to deal with that, thankyouverymuch.

Aside: looks like it isn't CM immediately responsible for the
duplicates. I'm trying a different SMTP server for this.
