[winswitch] --socket-dir doesn't work?

I noticed something kind of odd. 

In previous versions of XPRA, I could place the XPRA sockets in a different directory, but, now 
consider this 

┌─[esarmien at dev-cod6-2.clus.hmdc.harvard.edu]  
└─[~]> xpra --version 
xpra v0.17.4 

According to this log, the unix domain socket is still created in my ~/.xpra home directory, no matter what I do.
