tcp_wrappers sgi_fam problem with xinetd

Description of problem:
I get *many* entries in /var/log/messages like
Jan 15 09:08:57 host xinetd: libwrap refused connection to
sgi_fam (libwrap=fam) from <no address>
Jan 15 09:08:57 host xinetd: Deactivating service sgi_fam due
to excessive incoming connections. Restarting in 30 seconds.
My hosts.deny has ALL: ALL and hosts.allow has ALL: 127.0.0.1.
I have seen this problem before in RH8. Searching bugzilla I found
bug #74696 which appears to be the same problem. There is a
workaround described there which is to add "flags = NOLIBWRAP" to
/etc/xinetd.d/sgi_fam. That appears to also fix my problem. This RH8
bug was gone in RH9. Has it been re-introduced somehow?
