SUMMARY: /usr/openwin/lib/ Hangup errors

I only got a couple of responses for this problem.

Best response is from

Isn't it normal behaviour? is one of these horrible "tcp wait"
daemons in inetd.conf ("horrible" because they can't be tcp_wrapped),
so it is expected to come and go on its own erratic schedule. Don't
focus on the error message, but rather on whether the font server
functionality is impaired. (Aside: on my machines I've disabled the
font server entirely. Users have yet to notice...)

Solution: (May not be the best)

I disabled the font server by disabling commenting out the following
in the /etc/inetd.conf file:

fs             stream  tcp     wait nobody /usr/openwin/lib/    fs

Then I did a "kill -HUP" on the inetd daemon process.

Original Problem:
