The cause is not explicitly a patch, but building tdenetwork with -DWITH_SLP=ON. The patch for supporting OpenSLP was committed Oct. 26 (commit 354555a2), which coincides with the period of Oct. 24-28. Building with OpenSLP support existed in the automake version but never was explicitly tested. The cmake patch needed to be tested and that is the period when the daemon started to fail.

As SLP is a network location tracking protocol, possibly the effects I see are intentional. Yet if so, then a better feedback mechanism is needed to inform users why the daemon is not starting or won't start.

I filed bug report 1314.
