It is.

Printed by "hg st":
   * First "File exists" is printed when the "hg st" child fails at
creating the already existing inotify socket
    * "could not talk" is the "hg st" parent complaining that he cant
communicate with the child he just started. It's normal, because it
         - "No such file or directory" happens because the existing
socket is a broken symlink: target does not exist.

Second "file exists" is printed by "hg inserve"; same reason as the first one.
