Thank you for the excellent observation. The ability of the human mind to
see what it wants and ignore reality is UNlimit-ed. Just look at
Washington D.C. for more proof ;-)
Oddly, when I tried 'ulimit -m unlimited' in bash I still got the same
error, so there must be some other variation that could be used. I did
finally go to csh and used 'UNlimit' which worked as advertised.
