netbase restarts inetd in it's postinst, so there shouldn't be any
significant amount of time that inetd's not running. The portmapper is
a different matter, but it shouldn't affect telnet.

Ah. Your problem is probably telnetd's prerm:

] if command -v update-inetd >/dev/null 2>&1; then
]        update-inetd --disable telnet
] fi

It might be better to bracket this with an `if [ "$1" != "upgrade" ]', or
similar. Herbert, does that sound right?

ssh strikes me as much better thing to use for remote updates, though :)
