Description of problem:
It ignores my SMTP service with this version of xinetd.  If I revert back to
xinetd-2.3.7-4.7x, the smtp service runs fine.  Here are the contents of my smtp
service description for xinetd:

service smtp
    socket_type     = stream
    wait            = no
    user            = qmaild
    disable         = no
    server          = /var/qmail/bin/tcp-env
    server_args     =  /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd
    log_on_failure  = HOST RECORD ATTEMPT USERID

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install new package
2.qmail-smtpd doesn't start

Actual Results:  May 22 06:44:38 lotus xinetd[1167]: xinetd Version 2.3.11
started with libwrap loadavg options compiled in.
May 22 06:44:38 lotus xinetd[1167]: Started working: 7 available services
May 22 06:44:41 lotus xinetd: xinetd startup succeeded

Expected Results:  May 22 06:46:11 lotus xinetd: xinetd shutdown succeeded
May 22 06:46:11 lotus xinetd[1213]: xinetd Version 2.3.7 started with libwrap
options compiled in.
May 22 06:46:11 lotus xinetd[1213]: Started working: 8 available services
May 22 06:46:14 lotus xinetd: xinetd startup succeeded

Additional info:

The only thing I changed to get expected results was to revert to the previous
version of xinetd.  I guess I shouldn't trust running up2date from cron.
Comment 1 Brian Hayward 2003-05-22 10:04:42 EDT
When I say "qmail-smtpd doesn't start, above"  Clearly what I mean is: "xinetd
does not listen on port 25 for requests"
Comment 2 Jay Fenlason 2003-05-22 10:13:21 EDT
Delete the meaningless RECORD option from the log_on_failure line in your
config.  Older versions of xinetd ignored this unimplementd option.  Xinetd
2.3.11 flags this (never implemented) option as an error.
