Appears to have been from some testing I did when I installed OI_148 as it was owned by user "tst" which exists in /etc/passwd, but has an empty home directory.

It means they're listening for remote connections and aren't just
restricted to the local host.  (i.e. they're IPv4 & IPv6 sockets,
not Unix domain sockets)
