No, no, xinetd didn't killed the proftpd process. It just started it, then
realized that it's child just died, and then saved the pid number and 
duration time for debugging reasons in the syslog as it couldn't do more.

.... ProFTPD terminating (signal 11)
xinetd[17612]: EXIT: ftp status=1 pid=3425 duration=8(sec)
