I'm of two minds here. On the one hand, honoring the user's limits is

It's too low for some highly atypical test cases, but in real programs the limit is not a problem.
This is not always true; at least 3 users ran into it before we added the Apple local call
to setrlimit that Mike refers to below.

Then you'll want to remove the Apple local code that bumps it up automatically, then turn it loose on the community, and see if people like the result. I think I know the answer. I think the answer is, it is just way too low on darwin.
Yes, clearly this is a Darwin-specific problem. It seems to me having the setrlimit call
on Darwin, but not elsewhere, is the right thing.
