Someone su'd to root, then killed and restarted inetd. inetd inherited
the user's environment, and all things started from inetd also inhertied
To test, get the PID of inetd and run...
/usr/ucb/ps -eww <PID>
If you see USER set to the user, that's what's going on.
1) Don't kill inetd on solaris, just HUP it.
2) Man 'env'. It has a way to run a process (like inetd) with a minimal
set of environment variables.. Mine only has 2 set.
