Subject: hosts.deny has no effect for ntalkd

I'm running NetBSD 1.5.3. When I have ntalkd enabled in /etc/inetd.conf, 
line ALL: ALL in hosts.deny and no hosts.allow, I discovered that I can
connect to talkd from other machine. Ftp doesn't work, as expected, but
talk does and inetd does not even log the connection, even if it's
invoked with the -l option. (I know the code is called "tcpwrappers" not
"udpwrappers" bud the original tcpd man page (available eg. on linux
systems) states it works for udp.)

Does please anybody know if it is a bug?

Thanks Pavel
