It looks exactly like the problem introduced with the last patch to the
base system...


"The patch provided with the initial version of this advisory exposed
the pre-existing bug in FreeBSD's linux emulation code, resulting in
attempts to use UNIX sockets from linux applications failing.  The most
common instance where UNIX sockets were used by linux applications is
in the context of the X windowing system, including the widely used
linux "flash" web browser plugin."

So, perform whatever type of updating you typically use to apply the
fixed patch.
