Cool - I figured that would fix the networking stuff, but the
smfi_opensocket() stuff... that's strange. You might get that if the
socket is already open, or if you're trying to use both TCP and Unix
sockets simultanerously.

That section of my looks like this:

smtpd_milters = inet:localhost:8891
non_smtpd_milters = $smtpd_milters
#milter_protocol = 2
milter_default_action = accept

(I comment out the milter_protocol because I'm using a modern version
of Postfix)

Can you share your opendkim.conf file?
