Because you shouldn't be trying to run sshd(8) standalone and out of
inetd(8) at the same time.  I'd advise you not to run sshd(8) out of
inetd(8): sshd(8) has to do quite a lot of heavy crypto stuff when it
starts up, and running it out of inetd will force it to do that for
every new connection.  You're quite likely to end up running out of
random numbers from /dev/random and seeing your ssh connections
hanging.

        Cheers,

        Matthew
