Obviously I'm missing something, but this hunk of this change:

    daemon: Don't autospawn if a server address is explicitly configured.

is not conditional on autospawning actually taking place: it will
trigger when the daemon is started conventionally.

N: main.c: User-configured server at sound.srvr.nix, not autospawning.

Shouldn't this check autospawn_fd, or *something* initialized only when
autospawning? Or am I missing something? (I suspect I must be.)
