Sounds like a permissions error. Assuming you're not running xinetd as a user other than root, you probably have some modified permissions on your disk. Run the command sudo diskutil repairPermissions / to restore the Apple designated permissions.

    I had the same error. Try a "which swat".

    Besides the default OS X install of samba, it turns out that Samba was also installed by Fink on my machine (and /sw/sbin comes before /usr/sbin in my PATH). I edited /etc/xinetd.d/swat, changing the "server=" line from "/usr/sbin/swat" to "/sw/sbin/swat" and then everything was fine.
