I thought inetd or xinetd are part of the default installation on Ubuntu.
However separate packages of [x]inetd should be provided. On CentOS (and
RedHat) that's the case.
Bundling of inetd with the unsecure telnetd is very odd imho.

I use CVS+[x]inetd for years and always [x]inetd worked.

I had expected that Ubuntu ships the xinetd by default.
