I think it would be less confusing if you were not displaying the "unknown".
I think that's why people assume something is wrong. Since getting the port
number is not that much reliable, why don't you stop displaying it at all?
What is it good for if you can only display when you start the daemon?

Blue Screen of Death n.: [common] This term is closely related to the older
Black Screen of Death but much more common (many non-hackers have picked it
up). Due to the extreme fragility and bugginess of Microsoft Windows,
misbehaving applications can readily crash the OS (and the OS sometimes
crashes itself spontaneously). The Blue Screen of Death, sometimes decorated
with hex error codes, is what you get when this happens. (Commonly
abbreviated BSOD.)
