 Hm. Find wmii's socket - it will be something like
/tmp/ns.$USER.$DISPLAY/wmii. Then try the following (assuming bourne
$ WMII_ADDRESS='unix!/tmp/ns.joerg.:0/wmii'
$ echo lol |wmiir write /tag/sel/ctl

 You should get an error like:
wmiir: fatal: cannot write file '/tag/sel/ctl': bad command
 If you don't, then it would seem libixp (or wmii, but probably
libixp) has the same problem in Darwin as NetBSD.
