       dbus-cleanup-sockets - clean up leftover sockets in a directory

       dbus-cleanup-sockets [--help] [--version] [directory]

       The dbus-cleanup-sockets command cleans up unused D-Bus connection sockets.

       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 is 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 clean up any leaked sockets.   Or
       you  can  just ignore the leaked sockets, they are not really hurting anything, other than
       cluttering the /tmp directory.

       See http://www.freedesktop.org/software/dbus/ for more information.
