That's curious, on my alpha I get:
$ ulimit -a
core file size (blocks) 0
data seg size (kbytes) unlimited
file size (blocks) unlimited
max locked memory (kbytes) unlimited
max memory size (kbytes) unlimited
open files 256
pipe size (512 bytes) 8
stack size (kbytes) 8192
cpu time (seconds) unlimited
max user processes 256
virtual memory (kbytes) unlimited

Your open files is also severly limited. What's going on?
Note that you can not increase these values if you're not root.
Look for ulimit somewhere in /etc/profile etc.
