stranded svnserve processes?

I'm running svnserve from xinetd and I see a slow accumulation of
stranded svnserve processes (a half dozen a day or so). This becomes a
problem because I have xinetd's cps (connections per second) set to
drop connections if there are 100 in a second, so once enough of these
build up (e.g. 60 this morning), the normal fluctuations of svn usage
end up causing peaks that hit the cps threshold and then users are
getting "svn: connection closed unexpectedly".

I've tried reproducing this but it's not as simple as just Ctrl-C'ing
a client during a lengthy operation. In any event, any suggestion on
how to handle this? I could start a cron job to either restart xinetd
nightly, or just periodically purge older svnserve processes, but I'd
welcome a better solution.

This is subversion 1.4.3, and xinetd 2.3.13 on FC4, kernel 2.6.14.

Thanks,
Kylo
