the vmware-server (vmware overlay, Bug 137424 ) init script should not "need" xinetd. So that a xinetd restart does not restart vmware!! Xientd serves many network services, not only vmware. It should "use" xinetd. Also xinetd is not necessary for running vmware-server.
So, why don't you tell there? ;)

I thought that is about vmware-server in generally, not about specific bugs.
will report the next one there.
