Well, check /etc/inetd.conf and make sure that things are not not
accidently serviced by inetd. Otherwise when you flush the rules or
when you haven't got a default DROP policy, certain ports will still be
reported as open.

Don't know, better check to be sure. Just do a 'grep -v ^# /etc/inetd.conf'
to see what's enabled.
