If I had to guess, I'd say that maybe a config file was unintentionally 
created, which triggered the services.


chkconfig --list ipchains
chkconfig --list iptables

For them to start at boot, I believe these need to be "on" at your run 
level, plus you'd need /etc/sysconfig/ipchains and /etc/sysconfig/iptables

If this doesn't explain it, maybe you can find it with:

grep ipchains /etc/rc.d/* /etc/rc.d/init.d/*
