I would start by reviewing the inetd config file and check if another
running service has been configured to use the same ip/udp port than tftp
service. If there is none, it could be that tftp (or inetd) is being
tried to run several times, maybe triggered from a second service/
daemon instance :-?
Also, review the current connections with "netstat -puan".
