I'm befuddled a bit here -- are you talking about /etc/.esd/socket being 
created on the client, or on the server?  It's only required on the 
server (to fool flash into thinking esd is running locally) -- and esd 
doesn't need to run at all on the server...

Unless you mean just that -- esd won't run on the server if you enable 
this hack, in which case I agree it's a bit sloppy if users log into the 
server locally...

Did I just add confusion, or did I completely misunderstand?  :)
