I fixed the problem with a simple ulimit in rc.
Apparently, after the fscks clear, login.conf takes effect and usage limits
are applied correctly.
Before fsck, they are at a "default".

My question is:  is this a "bug", or have I broken something silently, and
it's going to bite me in the ass one night when I least expect it?

says that it is that file, even though it's not (see below).

# /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit - run once at boot time

I want to change something in whichever of these scripts is run at
bootup, but I don't know which one gets run.
