       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.freedesktop.org/software/dbus/ 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 abnormally 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.
