A while ago I started getting error emails (from cron running the
save-entropy script) the system has been setup and running for the best part
of 2 years now.

I can run the script manually from the cli (as root) and no error is
generated.

>From all I can figure the save-entropy script is running as it should ( the
/var/db/entropy/  dir has the created files and by the mod date it keeps
creating new ones correctly each time) I have compared permission settings
with another working machine and all seems fine.
but I keep getting these emails saying there is a socket operation that is
not permitted.

The entire email is:-
