Bug#62987: general: midentd inetd.conf line starts daemon as "daemon" but the log file is owned by "identd"
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
Turning the line back on, and changing the user to identd, solved the problem
