I thought I can trick FR to do that by touching detail's config file
before sending HUP, but that didn't do anything.

Oh, that would be quite an acceptable workaround for me.

I wanted to try that, but for some strange reason I cannot use the
control socket feature. The servers seems to expect an IP address in the
listener section:

Config is just the (stripped) default from

listen {
	type = control
	socket = ${run_dir}/${name}.sock

I also tried putting it into my "server default" or in a separate
server, with the same result.

I can add "ipaddr = *" (and some port setting) to make the error go
away, but I will get an udp listener then, so that doesn't work either.
Any hint on how to get this running?
