No, it was stock Debian (5.0/lenny IIRC).  It worked fine straight from 
the freshly-installed packages in my test VM, so I'm not certain what 
went wrong.

Nothing jumped out at me from any of the logs;  although from past 
experience it was likely a socket (plus parent directories) 
permissions+ownership issue.  Switching to using a TCP socket was faster 
than wading through the combinations and permutations on which processes 
were running as which user and group and convincing the system to really 
let me keep them as customized instead of as installed.  (Which I've 
done with CentOS [3 IIRC] a number of years ago.)
