Bug#2133: inetd(8) doesn't say whether/when looping services reenabled

Package: netbase
Version: 1.22-1

The manpage inetd(8) describes the `.max' suffix in the inetd.conf:
                            The optional ``max'' suffix (separated from
     ``wait'' or ``nowait'' by a dot) specifies the maximum number of server
     instances that may be spawned from inetd within an interval of 60 sec-
     onds. When omitted, ``max'' defaults to 40.

However, it doesn't say whether disabled services are reenabled
automatically, and if so when.

If disabled services are not reenabled automatically after a timeout
they should be, IMO.  If they are the timeout should be documented.
