Description of problem:
ypbind seems to bind to random ports. I've experienced this before on
Fedora but this is the first time I've noticed it on RHEL3:

[root@rccweb xinetd.d]# netstat -tanp | grep 995
tcp        0      0   *              
LISTEN 7174/ypbind
[root@rccweb xinetd.d]# ps -ef | grep ypbind
root      7174     1  0 Sep08 ?        00:00:15 ypbind
root     11093 11047  0 14:54 pts/6    00:00:00 grep ypbind
[root@rccweb xinetd.d]#

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

You can specify the port ypbind bind to with the -p 
command line argument.
