Turns out it does fail.  There seems to be a kernel bug that makes it
fails if anything tries to set a value of RLIM_INFINITY:

| getrlimit(RLIMIT_CORE, {rlim_cur=0, rlim_max=RLIM_INFINITY}) = 0
| setrlimit(RLIMIT_CORE, {rlim_cur=0, rlim_max=RLIM_INFINITY}) = -1 EPERM (Operation not permitted)

Workaround is to also set the hard limit to a smaller value.


We fight only when there is no other choice.  We prefer the ways of
peaceful contact.
