What's so odd about it?

you said it yourself that:
161 for SNMP
79 for finger
and 1524 for the reason that many RPC exploits spawn shell on this port, and people use this port for their backdoors too.

as far as your doubts about fingerd, there has been exploits for finger daemon.

It's just a scan probably using synscan, and he had exploits for fingerd and snmp only, and also trying out his luck to find some left backdoored box on port 1524.

It's quiet usual, looks like a newbie cracker scan on you. :)
