Description of problem:
Since the security update to 2.3.11-1.7x, my tftp server process doesn't restart
after it was killed. I have to restart xinetd instead.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. tftp localhost
2. get somefile
4. killall in.tftpd
5. tftp localhost
6. get somefile
Actual Results: I get a connection timeout message, there's no in.tftpd running.
Expected Results: It should restart in.tftpd and the result of step 2 and 6
should be the same.
This was working fine with xinetd-2.3.7-4.7x, the previous version I had installed.
OK, I've found the problem: there was a wait=no entry in /etc/xinetd.d/tftp.
This didn't cause problems until the update to 2.3.11. I don't know where this
came from, as the default correct setting is wait=yes.
