ssh and winbind seem to die after log out

So I am running RH5.5, openssh 4.3, and winbind Version 3.0.33-3.29.el5_5. When I log off of a system, ssh and winbind daemons appear to die (when I log on through the console, I don't see sshd or winbindd) Any ideas on what can be causing this?

If SSH and winbind are controlled by a "SuperDaemon" (like inetd or xinetd), then the services are only started when a request comes in on the configured port.
Note that you wouldn't normally invoke an SSH process when logging into the console (as SSH is used for remote access).

To check if they are controlled by a "SuperDaemon", look for an inetd.conf or xinetd.conf file in your /etc/ directory.

NOTE: I'm running CentOS 5, I have an /etc/xinetd.conf file, as well as an /etc/xinetd.d directory (which contains various configuration files for several services.
However, SSH seems to have it's own dedicated service (as "chkconfig --list|grep -i ssh" shows).
