Re: can't run as root with netbsd-5

I think it's a bug where _your_ process limit is considered at some point,

exact details, including at what point it occurs. If you sprinkle printfs to
find out where the error is coming from, and what the various credentials
involved are, we should be able to figure out what to do.

Except that sshd was started from /etc/rc at boot time, so my non-root process limit shouldn't have been in the picture at all, and root logins through there had the same problem.
