Double CHILD_MAX; 40 -> 80. 40 just doesn't make sense on modern systems.
at that time, i had CHILD_MAX set to 160 in a local patch. i've noticed
one machines i don't have this local patch on that i use heavily, with
many screen(1) windows and X11, i can run into the 80 value quite a lot..
can we make this 256 perhaps? login.conf can lower it for people who
want it, which is nice...but it find it annoying as-is :-)
