Actually the db_nickname syntax doesn't leave the client hanging forever.
After some minutes it finally responds: 

  FATAL ERROR - (acedb on greengenes) reported by program saceclient (ACEDB
  4_9c), in file sclientlib.c, at line 269: Client aborted, server did not
  reply correctly during handshake

In fact ps() shows that the server never started during that time.  And
nothing gets written to database/serverlog.wrm, even if DEBUG is turned on
in serverconfig.wrm.

Note, this is only on Solaris.  In Linux this is working fine.  Identical
setup as far as I can see.

The other error message,

  FATAL ERROR - (acedb on greengenes) reported by program saceclient (ACEDB
  4_9c), in file acesocketlib.c, at line 284: connect error system error 146 -
  Connection refused

, the one you get with the "20001/1" syntax, is the same as you get if
you tell saceclient to connect to a port that isn't listed in inetd.conf or
services at all.
