   I looked and didn't find another Unix system that does, although I didn't
   look at Linux. Does it enforce the limit?

i dunno.  i left linux at work for the weekend :-)
   I'm thinking this change should be backed out because it breaks historic
   practice and is likely to bite lots of people in the ass. :-)
that's exactly the reason i posted about this.
