apt-proxy and xinetd

I have not been able to get apt-proxy to work via xinetd.  It works fine
with inetd.  

     From the client side it hangs and timesout.

     I can see in the auth.log that it is connecting.

     There are funny things in syslog:

localhost xinetd[29274]: Activating service apt-proxy
localhost xinetd[29274]: Deactivating service apt-proxy due to excessive incoming connections.  Restarting in 10 seconds.

apt-proxy log shows strange problems:

service apt-proxy
        disable         = no
        socket_type     = stream
        protocol        = tcp
        port            = 9999
        wait            = no
        user            = aptproxy
        server          = /usr/sbin/apt-proxy
        server_args     = -l /var/log/apt-proxy.log

I do not wish to run inetd.  Is there a way to run apt-proxy as a stand
alone daemon?  I could not figure that our either.
