Hey folks...  :)  I was just checking the man page for "limits", and saw

The  limits  file (/etc/limits by default or LIMITS_FILE defined config.h)
describes the resource limits you wish to impose. It should be owned by root
and readable by root account only.

However, currently, /etc/limits looks like this:

$ ls -l /etc/limits
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 725 2005-07-07 14:39 /etc/limits

Should the permissions on this be changed somewhere to 0600?  :)
