Warning: no local sockets defined

Without sockets, xpra list cannot find anything.

So ... has the session started or not?

If it didn't, I expect the sockets error to be fatal.

"There must have been XDG_RUNTIME_DIR available", but I cannot guarantee that (I did this just before a restart).

Also, I added myself to the xpra group too just in case
