   I’m just saying that an obvious way to work around the silly socket
   name length limitation is to cd somewhere, and then use a relative
   path, like ./my-socket.

You didn't answer my question, I'm still curious as to _why_ this happens.

   BTW, syslogd.sh says #!/bin/sh, but it seems to use non-POSIX
   extensions, no?

What extentions do are you thinking of exactly?  I couldn't find
anything particular.  As a side note, and useless fact of the day,
there is no requirement by POSIX that /bin/sh is a POSIX shell though
that is what is traditional on unixoids.
