bug#31848: 26.1; M-x server-start crashes if extraneous server file exis

It is probably an OS X only crash.

Emacs won't write the file unless if server-use-tcp is enabled. Customize it, enable server-use-tcp (set to true), save for future sessions. Restart emacs. Launch server. If the folder doesn't exist, Emacs will create it and assign 700 perms.

I've reproduced with a vanilla configuration of Emacs to rule out the possibility it is a conflict with some other extension I've installed.

I’m probably being daft, but I can’t find any ‘server’ file when I’m
running the emacs server.

The directory listed in server-auth-dir doesn’t even exist.
