Description of problem:
Lately, I have been receiving this kind of error messages from xinetd:

in 1 seconds. Exiting...

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


How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Some lusers complain they can't check their email via pop3.
2. tail /var/log/messages
3. see the error messages.
	

Actual Results:  Ugly error messages.

Expected Results:  POP3 retreival to work.

Additional info:

It has happen three times now, one of my users complain they can't access 
their pop3 email, and I look at the /var/log/messages and find this:

Aug 22 22:42:41 principal xinetd[2682]: {bad_signal} Received 10 signals 
in 1 seconds. Exiting...
Aug 22 22:48:32 principal xinetd[2702]: {general_handler} (2702) 
Unexpected signal: 11 (Segmentation fault)

Aug 22 22:50:37 principal xinetd[2709]: {bad_signal} Received 10 signals 
in 1 seconds. Exiting...

Now, I check my email via imaps and I haven't had any problem with that.

All errata has been applied to that system, for what it's worth:

[root@myhost /root]# rpm -qa | grep xinetd
xinetd-2.3.0-1.71
Comment 1 Alejandro Gonzalez Hernandez - Imoq 2001-08-23 00:02:48 EDT
Duh! I forgot to mention:

service xinetd stop
service xinetd start

seems to fix the problem (until it's present again, at least).
