Yes. The www-proxy entry has been called more than 40 time within
an interval of 60 seconds. Inetd now thinks that the service starts
and dies immediately and disables the service. You can change the
limit by adding a new maximal value to the wait/nowait options
(separated by a dot).


www-proxy       stream  tcp     nowait.70  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/http-gw
www-proxy       dgram   udp     wait.70    root    /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/http-gw

might fix your problem (inetd now allows 70 connections within 60
