So I started up /usr/bin/inetd from rc.sysinit...

Connecting via telnet gets a connect...

It indicates that inetd recieved the connection and then immediatedly
disconnects...

A couple of hypotheses:
1. spawning another process just isn't working....  
   (I don't really believe this one)
2. inetd is broken 
   (I don't really believe this one)
3. Allocating a pty somehow is failing...
   (I sort of but don't really believe this one.)

At the same time I never get a console login....

Any ideas?
