A bug exists in xinetd as shipped with Mandrake Linux 8.0 dealing with
TCP connections with the WAIT state that prevents linuxconf-web from
working properly. As well, xinetd contains a security flaw in which
it defaults to a umask of 0. This means that applications using the
xinetd umask that do not set permissions themselves (like SWAT, a web
configuration tool for Samba), will create world writable files. This
update sets the default umask to 022.
