Ah, I didn't knew that, sorry.

Am I right in assuming that an abstract namespace is a linux-only feature?
The unix manpage on my Mac doesn't describe it, neither does FreeBSD
(http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=unix&apropos=0&sektion=0&manpath=FreeBSD+8.1-RELEASE&format=html).

Correct - sun_path starting with a NUL byte is a Linux extension, and not portable to other hosts (except maybe Cygwin). We need to come up with an alternative to the abstract namespace for use on non-Linux hosts.
