#1352 closed defect (fixed)

unix-sockets egg uses deprecated(?) ##sys#pathname-resolution api

The unix-connect and and unix-listen procedures call ##sys#pathname-resolution, which seems to have disappeared from recent CHICKEN releases. I'm working around this by using the pathname-expand egg to replace this call - See attached diff.

To me, it should just stop calling ##sys#pathname-resolution or anything of the sort.

Magic functions like that tend to cause security problems.

Removing that call also works for me - the pathname resolution would just move up into my own code, but I'm happy for the magic to live where I can see it. It would be a backwards incompatible change though, so a note in the changelog would be good if you decide to take that route.

I agree removing the resolution would be the better fix

See unix-sockets 1.9 - I removed the relevant calls.
