xinetd fails to spawn ipop3
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:48:24 EDT
Description of Problem:
After a period of use, xinetd fails to spawn the ipop3 process. telnet on port
110 gives a connection, but ipop3 is not spawned and so no data is transmitted
via the connection.
This seems to occur on my not terribly busy server after around a day; I have
tried repeatedly connecting and disconnecting with telnet to no avail in
reproducing the problem.
The workaround is simply to restart xinetd.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Leave xinetd for a while
2. connect with telnet
3. watch no process get spawned
Sorry I can't make this greatly repeatable. I can't find anything else that
looks like this bug.
