I am no linux guru but i have the feeling that identd should
DIE after it gets used.

What happens is that I start irc and inet fires up identd
which results in in.identd and 10 other (root-owned) thread-processes.
Unfortunately these processes remain alive for ever.

I could be wrong but I think they should only last
for a few seconds after they start.

identd is multi-threaded, and like all multi-threaded programs, appears to
be multiple processes under Linux.  It also becomes a daemon and listens for
new incoming requests, which is why it never dies.
