       dbus-cleanup-sockets - clean up leftover sockets in a directory

       dbus-cleanup-sockets [DIRECTORY]

       The   dbus-cleanup-sockets  command  cleans  up  unused  D-Bus  connection  sockets.  See  http://www.freedesk- for more information about the big picture.

       If given no arguments, dbus-cleanup-sockets cleans up sockets in the standard default socket directory for  the
       per-user-login-session  message  bus;  this is usually /tmp.  Optionally, you can pass a different directory on
       the command line.

       On Linux, this program is essentially useless, because D-Bus defaults to using "abstract  sockets"  that  exist
       only in memory and don't have a corresponding file in /tmp.

       On most other flavors of UNIX, it's possible for the socket files to leak when programs using D-Bus exit abnor-
       mally or without closing their D-Bus connections. Thus, it might be interesting to run dbus-cleanup-sockets  in
       a cron job to mop up any leaked sockets.  Or you can just ignore the leaked sockets, they aren't really hurting
       anything, other than cluttering the output of "ls /tmp"

       dbus-cleanup-sockets was adapted by Havoc Pennington from linc-cleanup-sockets written by Michael Meeks.
