Tracking a network server problem with lsof, by accident I uncovered
evidence suggesting the AIX 4.2 inetd leaves its last file descriptor
open when forking children. Hence the child processes -- rlogind,
rshd, telenetd, etc. -- each hold the file open for their duration.
I've not seen this error break anything, although it will put
unnecessary stress on the file tables of systems that have a large
number of inetd-parented processes. This error doesn't seem to be
present in the AIX 4.1.4 inetd.
