What exactly made you think that I said the above message was not

Yes, if the user makes the conscious choice of passing an argument to
--daemon, then you can mention it in the error message.  If she doesn't,
then there's little point of doing so, especially when the message is so
short and unexplanatory.

The take home message here is that the error messages need a bit more
thought put into them.
