Coda File System

UNIX-domain sockets on a Coda FS?

I'm having a problem running a new window manager and I can't explain
my problems any other way than by blaming coda :) 

The WM is called "sawmill", and it uses a UNIX-domain socket in the 
~/.sawmill/ directory to allow runtime configuration and communication. 
When my home directory is a Coda-mounted volume (5.3.1, linux-glibc2.1, 
kernel 2.2.10), launching sawmill leaves this error message in 
my .xsession-errors :

bind: Input/output error

... and no socket gets created, so I am unhappy. 

The same config without Coda works fine (except for kernel version, 
2.2.12 instead of 2.2.10).  

Any thoughts?
