Actually, I think his problem is the 3+ minute delay from starting MD
to having the socket created.

I'd suggest upping the logging of MD and seeing what's going on. 
Knowledge of the OS and MD versions here would be *very* useful -
without knowing them the problem could be anything.  Details of your
hardware and current load status (cpu load, memory usage etc) would
probably help too.
