Yes, spiped is trying to bind the /tmp/blah socket, yet the file /tmp/blah
already exists. Please delete that file, then run your spiped -e command, and
then run the other program which you want to send data to /tmp/blah.
(if that other program is also trying to bind /tmp/blah, then it probably needs
to be re-thought. The "server" program is the one which binds the socket; the
"client" program merely connects to it.)
