shadow-, process limits and fork bombs

Sorry for the noise. My fault. Shadow- is working normally.
I've been using slim as a login manager run
from a bootscript run by init and it seems that it is not setting the
limits. If I login at the command prompt shadow sets the limits. The
reason I thought shadow- was working and shadow- wasn't
was because when I built the system with shadow- I tested it at
the command prompt before I built xorg.
Sorry for the noise. Mea culpa.
