setting open file limits


I have been running into the too many open files error, for one of my
users, I have tried setting nofiles in /etc/security/limits.conf, but it
doesn't seem to work.

root: vim /etc/security/limits.conf

user1            -       nofile          8192

then i try
su - user1
ulimit -n

and I get 1024, I have checked my /etc/pam.d for pam_limits and it is
enabled for login/su, sshd and gdm and ...

so what am I doing wrong ?
