    I'm using logwatch (not sure of the name) to scan the logfiles and mail it to me.. suddenly I got a mail that was 126MB... and when I looked at it.. /var/log/messages was filled with this:

    service ftp, accept: Invalid argument (errno = 22)
    service poppassd, accept: Invalid argument (errno = 22)
    service auth, accept: Invalid argument (errno = 22)

    Any ideas what causes this.. not a good sign when it fills my logfile with 126MB with that..... :p

    The reason of this issue is that you had multiple instances of xinetd running at the same time.

    I have detected this issue on some servers with FC3 and Plesk 7.5.4

    I don't know if it's a Plesk or a Fedora issue.

    If Im not wrong it was a problem caused by watchdog.. I'm rid of it now :)
