This probably has to do with the order in which Windows System services
are started. e.g. if inetd depends on, say, 'windows socket services'(*)
then if inetd is started at bootup *before* WSS, it'll fail. However,
once the machine is running, then you can restart inetd and it'll work
because WSS is up.
I seem to remember some article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base about
this, and how to resolve it -- but no specifics. Hunt around at
(*) 'WSS' is an imaginary service I made up. But you get the idea.
