[alpine-user] Inetd

Greetings All,
Has anyone got inetd to work in 3.8? Specifically I am trying to get telnetd to work with inetd. Telnetd works fine standalone, but inetd cannot seem to start any programs at all. Even with -e inetd says nothing about a problem, and tcpsvd, which might provide some information, it not included in busybox-extras. Line from /etc/inetd.conf:
telnet    stream    tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/telnetd telnetd -i -l /bin/uname       # normally /bin/login, uname for testing

Anyone have this working or an idea of how to debug it?
