Unix-connect: can't connect to server

I recently upgraded Slackware 10.0 to 10.1 and have run into a few errors. When I start X, then close it without doing anything else (by exiting Fluxbox), I get the following among all the messages X displays:

unix_connect: can't connect to server (unix:/tmp/mcop-myusername/hostname_compname-number-othernumber)
What is this referring to?
