I can't download files via tftp. The tftp client gets a timeout and the
written file is 0 bytes. I've done all my test on a local machine. No
network was involved. 

System information:
FreeBSD lizard 5.4-RC2 Wed Apr 13 15:04:30 UTC 2005
root at lizard:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/UP  i386

inetd.conf contains 
tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/libexec/tftpd tftpd -l -s /var/tftpboot

/var/tftpboot permission is set to 755 (root:wheel).

I tried the -u root option for tftpd too but it didn't work either. Also
changed ownership to nobody:nobody for /var/tftpboot but no luck.
There is no error message in xferlog. I always get tftpd[47744]: read request for //test: success. But the file was not

Everything works fine if I remove the -l option or the -s option in
inetd.conf for tftpd. Is this "strange" behavior with -l as option
