This is a man page bug. It is very clear in stating that...

              The  --client-disconnect  command is passed the same pathname as
              the corresponding --client-connect command as its last argument.
              (after any arguments specified in cmd ).

but since there is no need for such a file (there is nothing that could be configured here, the client instance goes away right this moment), the code does not do it. No idea why the man page says so.

The man page change was done by Jonathan K. Bullard in commit d62859980c30362b36b7338fc99fe76e4ecb2cbd (cleaning up documentation in general), but I think the part about disconnect is just wrong. Since I ACKed the change, seems I'll have to fix it :-)
