[short version: the bug is not resolved]

I was also hit by this bug. And in my case, the variables "user" &
"group" were already set to "www-data" (message #15). So I had to
uncomment the lines with "listen.owner" & "listen.group" to have the
unix socket created with the correct user & group (www-data instead of

But what sounds strange to me is that the (normally default) values
shown in comments are not those really used. Firstly, this is
misguiding. But more importantly, this breaks a config that used to
work! So I did some investigations.

In a snapshot of my system, done before I upgraded, the unix socket
was correctly created, with the expected user & group:
srw-rw---- 1 www-data www-data 0 mai    7 14:53

And if I diff what changed during the update, I have:

So, according to me, this new version of php5-fpm is somewhat buggy...

Note: I switched to systemd during this same upgrade. So I first
looked in that direction... But I don't think this is related.
