Good day,

Thanks for your reply.  I didn't see this option in the documentation, but,
it seems to be behaving as expected now. =)

don't know too much about xinetd, but seems correct.

tftp-hpa (in recent versions) uses the short daemon mode. So the server
remains for some minutes (default: 15 minutes) while no
tftp request arrives. Try '-t 30' and the server process will exit
after 30 seconds.

Maybe you also have some hanging tftp connections, and you see some
leftover connections that try to deliver the next packet. These should
quit after the tftp timeout, and usually they'll do. These only
handle this specific transfer, so there won't be any interaction with
different tftp transfers.
