nope. I changed it to:

# ls -ald /var/imap/socket/idle
srwxrwxrwx    1 cyrus    cyrus           0 Jun 17 22:24 

SIGHUP'd the master. Nothing about idled appeared in the logs, I'm still 
getting the 'error sending to idled' errors in syslog. Trying to start by 
hand still gives:

# su - cyrus -c '/usr/cyrus/bin/idled -C /etc/imapd.conf'
bind: Address already in use

How do I figure out what exactly it is trying to bind to?
