I don't think this may be a REQUIRE issue, but a BEFORE: one

as an explample, if inetd must launch a NETWORK, it must be launch BEFORE  
LOGIN.

I can't send-pr this. I doesn't know even how to begin.

I rather puzzle that, ading a simple script (xdm) I can't manage to put it  
at the very end of rcorder (I have race problems between gettys from  
/etc/ttys and xdm).

To get a working patch, I've to rename xdm to 0xdm.  It, at a minimum,  
annoying.
I can sure what is.  But rcorder seems to be very sensitive to 'string  
order'.
Take note is other problems arise ... Just putting another script more !!

And ... why? sshd, sendmail, inetd, othermta ... It's no sense. All this  
are network servers that must be on NETWORK, REQUIRE NETWORKING and be run  
BEFORE LOGIN  ¿no?.
