I made the mistake of going by the copy of service on my Mac OS X box
which looks to see if there is an xinetd version of the service and
starts that if it's there. I didn't bother to scroll down to what it
does if it cannot find an xinetd service because the OP was talking
about xinetd configs etc. I've just checked it again and it does fall
back to /etc/rc.d scripts after checking for an xinetd service. The
OP seemed to suggest that his service does the same thing (of
checking for an xinetd.d service first).

See above.

See above. The service script on my box actually seds the xinetd
file for the service you are starting and then sends a HUP to xinetd.

Anyway, judging by subsequent posts, this is definitely an xinetd
issue and the subversion list is probably not the place to trouble
shoot it.
