[adevries@green adevries]$ rpm -qa |grep limit
[adevries@green adevries]$

up|downgrade back to bash 1. It's a change in the ulimit semantics
between bash1 & bash2.

Comment 2 compwiz 1999-11-24 03:17:59 UTC
I recieve the same problem with bash1, but with this message:
ulimit: cannot raise limit: Operation not permitted
