The 'imsimta dispatcher_stats_tty' command fails with the error:

Unable to connect to Dispatcher

From strace data, tt looks like it's trying to open the wrong filename for the dispatcher socket:

[pid 35979] connect(3, {sa_family=AF_LOCAL, sun_path="/tmp/.ms-data_configonfig.dispatcher.socket"}, 45 [wait(0x857f) = 35979] WIFSTOPPED,sig=133) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

The filename for the dispatcher socket actually is:

# ls -l /tmp/.san_mail_ms_ms-data_confignfig.dispatcher.socket
srwx------ 1 nsmail netscape 0 Jan 11 22:07 /tmp/.san_mail_ms_ms-data_confignfig.dispatcher.socket
