Nonsensical error: "Could not open network socket" at startup
Every time I launch thg I get these errors in the terminal where I run thg from:
_IceTransSocketUNIXConnect: Cannot connect to non-local host localhost _IceTransSocketUNIXConnect: Cannot connect to non-local host localhost Qt: Session management error: Could not open network socket
The host name of my machine happens to be "localhost", because this is a recently-installed openSUSE, and strangely enough, on installation openSUSE didn't prompt me to choose a name for the machine (I think that's stupid if you ask me), so I guess that's the default name.
I mention this just in case the confusion between "localhost" as a name for the host, as opposed to the conventional name for the loopback network interface (i.e. 127.0.0.1), is in any way related to the issue (or anyway it could lead to confusion when trying to make sense of the above error messages).
