Updating to Rawhide package VSFTPD 1.1.3 seems to have solved the issue.
Perhaps patching backwards so users do not have to give up xinetd functionality
in Red Hat 7.3 (vsftpd-1.0.1) would be helpful in fixing this bug.
in the changelog.
Can we make this bugfix available via up2date?
At this point, unlikely.
