Description John Franks 2004-01-15 10:22:13 EST
Description of problem:
I get *many* entries in /var/log/messages like

Jan 15 09:08:57 host xinetd[13341]: libwrap refused connection to   
sgi_fam (libwrap=fam) from <no address>

Then eventually
Jan 15 09:08:57 host xinetd[13230]: Deactivating service sgi_fam due
to excessive incoming connections.  Restarting in 30 seconds.

My hosts.deny has ALL: ALL and hosts.allow has ALL:

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?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login
2. Check end of /var/log/messages
Actual results:
Errors as above

Expected results:
no error messages
