I have a process (dbus-daemon) which has many open connection over UNIX sockets. One of these connections is fd #36:

=$ ps uw -p 23284
USER       PID %CPU %MEM    VSZ   RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND
depesz   23284  0.0  0.0  24680  1772 ?        Ss   15:25   0:00 /bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 5 --print-address 7 --session

=$ ls -l /proc/23284/fd/36 
lrwx------ 1 depesz depesz 64 2011-03-28 15:32 /proc/23284/fd/36 -> socket:[1013410]

=$ netstat -nxp | grep 1013410
(Not all processes could be identified, non-owned process info
 will not be shown, you would have to be root to see it all.)

Based on number connections, I assume that dbus-daemon is actually server. Which is OK. But how can I find which process is connected to it - using the connection that is 36th file handle in dbus-launcher? Tried lsof and even greps on /proc/net/unix but I can't figure out a way to find the client process.
