From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.7 [en] (Win98; U)

Description of problem:
When operating the time service on the new -7 release of inetd, my netstat still shows many lingering connections.  This bug was a hot topic 
for 
inetd.0.16-5 or so, and rumoured ot be fixed with -7.

[root@atlas /root]# rpm -q inetd redhat-release
inetd-0.16-7
redhat-release-6.2-1
[root@atlas /root]# netstat | grep time
tcp        0      5 client-151-198-10-:time ip-132147060.newje:2536 FIN_WAIT1   
tcp        0      0 client-151-198-10-:time ip-132147060.newje:2535 TIME_WAIT   
...... about 50 lines ....
tcp        0      0 client-151-198-10-:time ip-132147060.newje:2458 TIME_WAIT   

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install RH62
2.activate the time service
3.hit with a time client a few times.

this error may or may not occur with http://www.platypus.bc.ca/~bishop/software/inetdfix/inetd-0.16-6.i386.rpm .  It was used successfully to fix 
a problem in the official RHL62 version that resembled this new bug.
