Hi Les,

That is what is weird here.  This just croped up out of the blue.  No mail, 
no proxy.  My system is behind two or three IPCop boxes.

Things are fine now that I have set /etc/xinetd.d/auth:  disable = yes

Usually authd requests come in as a result of a separate outbound
connection - that is the remote system is attempting to check
who owns the other end of the socket making a connecton there.
Could you have been relaying a bunch of email at the time or
have had a lot of web connections going through a proxy that
uses authd?
