 Adding information from duplicate bug report 5245 from jak:
 ntpd wants to lock itself in RAM (and out of swap), to do this it
 attempts to reduce its maximum stack footprint.  The maximum stack
 footprint it currently uses is 512KiB (DFLT_RLIMIT_STACK = 128), and
 relatively recently as small as 256KiB (7.99.3x).  Since ASLR was
 enabled, we've been seeing "ntp_rlimit: Cannot set RLIMIT_STACK: Invalid
 argument" messages nearly ever time ntpd is started.
