Those 64 bytes are used by the HTTP embedded server to generate a
pseudo-random name for a UNIX socket (if the user does not specify it).

102 instead is a compromise on the various UNIX socket implementations
that do not adere to a common value, and is used when the user specify a
socket name on the command line. So the check about "102" is done only for
the user-supplied sockets name, the http server alloc the minimum required
ammount of memory to contains the random socket name + the '0' final byte.
