I have :-)

I had ulimit -u 400 and ulimit -n 400, ktrace was showing me resource temp 
unavailable messages, I removed those 2 limits and things started to work fine,
What are the upper limits for ulimit? And is there anyway I can compile in
bigger normal user limits at kernel compile time? the current ones are useless,
a couple of xterms and a window manager...

I've copied this to the fvwm mailing list incase anyone else has the same
