We have a continuing problem using wu-ftpd.  Logins (anonymous and not) 
tend to leave active logins long after the connection is over.  We're 
talking hours later.  Of course, this eventually maxes out the number of 
connections and noone can get in.

First of all, any clue why this happens?  Second, I don't care if there 
was a way I could kill ftp logins idle over, lets say, 10 minutes.  Using 
the -t and -T options has not affected this problem.  I can kill an idle 
telnet, I just don't know how to kill (or even find) these ftp logins.  
They don't appear as processes, just connections in netstat.
