I would expect this if you are running inetd and have its builtin ident
service enabled.  When you are sending email and your MTA connects to a
remote MTA, it is quite common for the remote MTA to connect to the
ident port on your host to get more information about the user who
initiated the connection request.   The cvsup server may also be making
ident queries.
