Bug#62987: general: midentd inetd.conf line starts daemon as "daemon" but the log file is owned by "identd"

Package: general
Version: 20000424
Severity: normal

At some point an upgrade (I'm using frozen and frequently upgrading)
caused midentd to stop working with a confusing error from perl.  The cause
of the error is that the /etc/inetd.conf line started midentd as user "daemon",
but the log file is created as user "identd"; the midentd program failed
when the log file could not be opened.

I don't know which package is responsible for the inetd.conf line, so I'm
reporting the bug against "general".

In addition, my inetd.conf line got turned #<off>#, why that happened I do
not know.

Turning the line back on, and changing the user to identd, solved the problem
