I saw that only talk and ntalk are started as user nobody.tty, the rest of
services are started as root.
The parent process which started "nobody" processes are started by user root
from inetd command.
These processes have command httpd - where is the connection ?

Aha, we are getting somewhere.

Usually, this is not the case. I don't think that Apache can even work this
Anyway, "big" servers, like Sendmail, Apache, Cyrus IMAP (since 2.0) will
run as 
standalone daemons, not from InetD.

Take a look at your /etc/inetd.conf and see what servers are run from it as
"nobody" and you'll be one step closer to finding your problem source.
