OK, I got hold of the manpages and found under BUGS a suggestion of problems
with xinetd and 

>         socket_type = stream
>         protocol    = tcp
>         wait        = yes

so I then found the mailing list for xinetd and asked there about it. The reply
I got was that xinetd did indeed have problems with this type of daemon until a
fix was applied for version "pre15". The xinetd people actually recommend using
version "pre16" or later. You can find out what version you have by:

> strings /usr/sbin/xinetd | grep Version

This produces several version strings, and on our system one of them is:

xinetd Version

So you can see we have some updating to do....!!

So I guess this is a warning (which I will repeat in the install README/NOTES)
that you cannot run the acedb server with a version of xinetd earlier than
