enabling INETD_COMPAT in xinetd forces -inetd_ipv6

Bug #729257 reported by Dan Muresan on 2011-03-04

xinetd (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: xinetd

When INETD_COMPAT=Yes in /etc/dfault/xinetd, the service script /etc/init.d/xinetd passes the -inetd_ipv6 to xinetd. This is not configurable. There is no way to say I want inetd compatibility, but no IPv6.

I do not want any IPv6 active on my system. Please add a separate flag for IPv6 in /etc/default/xinetd.

This was done because that's the default inetd behavior and xinetd must be usable as drop-in replacement.

You could still use xinetd disabling the compatibility.
