problem with telnet, xinetd, native console apps

I seem to have run into the same problem that folks with inetutils pre
1.3.2-11 had with console output from native apps not getting displayed in a
telnet session.

I'm running XP Pro, Cygwin DLL 1.3.22, inetutils 1.3.2-22, and xinetd
2.3.9-1.  The rest of the details are attached.

I have xinetd started via init which is the only cygwin-related thing I can
see in the service control manager.

I normally run init with the "Allow service to interact with desktop" box
_un_checked.  To see if anything changed, I tried checking the box, and and
empty console window named cygrnusrv.exe appears, but that's all.

My console app doesn't display any output.  At least not initially.  It's an
interactive program that will finish (i. e. return from main()) when I type
quit\n.  After I type quit\n, I see the output I normally see before the
prompt, and the stuff it prints before quitting.

The normal output (in bash) looks like this:

$ ./hello
T: main: running...type quit to end example.
>: quit
T: exiting

The output in a telnet session looks like this:

$ ./hello
T: main: running...type quit to end example.
>: T: exiting

Has there been a similar patch to xinetd as there was in inetutils 1.3.2-11?
I searched the archives, but came up empty.

Thanks much for your help.  Please let me know if I can provide more
