So here's what's happening: The connect call is blocking for too long
(longer than the busy-timeout or "-b" multiplexor flag.)  So the multiplexor
gets fed up and sends a SIGTERM.

Solution: Find out why the connect is blocking.  (Probably some Sophie
misconfiguration.)  Or increase the busy timeout (though that's unlikely
to be the real problem unless you've set it very low.)
