BTW, what is the correct way of increasing the default soft limit for NetBSD 
(in my case current)? It is is currenly set to 2048, which is too small for 
running KDE with the Qt kqueue patches. I've tried to uncomment the default 
login class in /etc/login.conf and set openfiles-cur=4096 -- but that appears 
to no effect (I did run cap_mkdb /etc/login.conf). I can work around it by 
adding a "ulimit -n 4096" to my .profile but it seems there should be a way to 
change the system default.
