Don't know what you're doing differently, but '-f' was enough for me.
In fact, I didn't have to change anything at all after the RedHat 7
install converted my inetd.conf.  The text of my

    # Converted by inetdconvert
    service cvspserver
     socket_type  = stream
     protocol  = tcp
     wait   = no
     user   = root
     server   = /usr/bin/cvs
     server_args  = -f --allow-root=/usr/lib/cvs
     disable   = no

republican form, let them stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with
which error of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left free to combat it.
