In rare cases, the path to the daemon socket cannot be created as it is
longer than PATH_MAX. Instead of failing with a NULL pointer dereference,
terminate the application with an error message.

This bug was discovered and resolved using Coverity Static Analysis
Security Testing (SAST) by Synopsys, Inc.
