Re: emacsclient can't connect to socket

    Since the socket is actually created in /tmp, I'm tempted to completely
    get rid of the hostname there, so it'd just be /tmp/emacs1001/server,
    so we'd get rid of the whole problem.

    Does anybody see a problem with it ?
    Could /tmp reasonably be shared between several machines ?

I am sure there was originally a good reason for putting the FQDN in
the socket name.  Formerly the sockets were made in your home
directory; using the machine name was certainly necessary in that

Whether it is still necessary, I am not sure.
